Activist Films — Cathy McCormack

Cathy McCormack is a housing and anti-poverty activist from Easthall in Easterhouse. A pivotal figure within her community, Cathy fought to raise awareness around the relationship of poor quality housing to the health and wellbeing of its inhabitants.

Her activism in addressing Scotland’s housing crisis in the 1990s and the quality of housing led to the refurbishment of multiple flats within Easterhouse, building solidarity across communities in locations such as Nicaragua.

Both War Without Bullets (1995) and Evening Calls (1993) are available on CCA Annex for the next 6-months and coincide with Winnie Herbstein’s CCA exhibition Dampbusters that runs Fri 6 August — Sat 4 September 2021.
