The Glasgow Reporter was shocked to see the devastation that the fire wreaked on the beautiful Glasgow School of Art (GSA) building, even now some two months after the event. We are sure you will be too if you have not yet had the opportunity of visiting the site. The street outside remains cordoned off and the building closed.

The GSA has set up the Mackintosh Appeal which it explained would help the school be rebuilt:-

The Mackintosh Building suffered a major fire on 23rd May. This appeal is designed to provide philanthropic support to enable the School to recover.

The Mackintosh Building is the heart of the Campus at The Glasgow School of Art, home to many of our fine art students and an integral part of our collective identity. On Friday 23rd May a fire caused significant damage to this iconic building.

It is not yet clear what the financial need shall be, but it is likely to be significant. This appeal will solicit and accept funds from Trusts, Companies and Individuals in the UK and around the world that will be applied at the discretion of the Board of Governors in the most appropriate way in response to this situation.

You can donate online through the Big Give.

Peter Capaldi, the latest Doctor Who and an alumnus of the GSA has filmed a video message to staff and students at the GSA just after the fire.
