GalGael are a working community based in Glasgow, Scotland. We work together on demanding common tasks that demonstrate ways of living with more humanity in our times. In this section you can find out a bit more about our story, what GalGael means and how we came to be building boats as well as how we're organised.
The name 'GalGael' is our way of re-rooting notions of identity and belonging in ways that are inclusive not exclusive – recognising there is both a bit of the stranger and a bit of the native in us all.
Our story is crafted by many people. It starts in one of the most deprived areas of Glasgow, where the GalGael grew from an environmental campaign.
We created GalGael as a vehicle to take forward what we’d learned and to move from being about what we didn’t want to what we did want.
GalGael consists of the GalGael Trust, a registered charity and GalGael Enterprises a social enterprise - wholly owned by the Trust.
