About Us

Maryhill Integration Network (mIN) was established in 2001 and became a registered charity (SCO37300) in March 2006. We are an independently constituted unincorporated voluntary organisation. We have an Executive Committee consisting of the Network office bearers and members of the network.

The Network brings communities together through, art, social, cultural and educational groups and projects, offering people a chance to learn new skills, meet new people, share experiences and take part in worthwhile activities to improve their communities.

mIN staff and volunteer

mIN works in partnership to develop projects and services that meet the needs of the local community. These aim to build bonds and links within and between communities to encourage cross-cultural understanding and celebrate diversity.

mIN understands that integration is not possible by working with only a particular group within the community and so encourages participation from people of all backgrounds, ages and abilities living within Greater Maryhill, the North West area of Glasgow and beyond.

 

mIN has an Open Door Policy so you are welcome to drop in to our office for more information or advice.

 

Our Activities Include:

ESOL Classes
Music, Dance and Theatre Production
Women’s Group
Creative Writing Group
Parent and Toddler Music Classes

      Hi Angela

      Thanks for getting in touch, sorry for the delay in replying! The Music and Theatre Production group works with a professional choreographer, dancers and musicians on creating performance dance pieces that are then performed at various event and venues throughout the year including the Go Dance Festival, Refugee Week at the Tron Theatre and Black History Month/Document Film Festival at the CCA. You would be more than welcome to just come along and join in. The group meets on Wednesdays in Maryhill at mIN’s premises from 6-8pm and on Thursdays at Garnethill Multicultural Centre at the same time, however if you are planning on attending in the next couple of weeks there have been some changes to venue for rehearsals so please contact mIN for more details.
      Kind regards
      Liane
