Together with local choirs from across Glasgow and choir leaders Cath Campbell and Harry Campbell, artist duo Ailie Rutherford and Laurence Payot surprised audiences in unexpected public spaces with a mobile architecture and walking, singing sculpture: People Pavilion.

People Pavilion is an on-going participatory project. Wherever it travels to, local groups of people are invited to make it their own by re-defining its shape and purpose. For Festival 2018, Ailie and Laurence worked with Duncan Perkins to create an ambitious new pop-out version of People Pavilion, with local choirs inhabiting the structure.

The choir created for the project was named “Strength in Unity’, it was made of a mix of people from different backgrounds, invited to sing songs celebrating solidarity, equality and diversity, to create a more politicised space within the 2018 festival, part of Glasgow European Championships.
