Glasgow Open House Arts Festival 2021
Glasgow Open House Arts Festival programme 24-27th September 2021
Glasgow Open House Arts Festival is a non-profit artist-led organisation that aims to improve access to the arts for everyone. Using new meaningful ‘spaces’ to engage with art and ideas you will find a wide range of exhibitions throughout the city.
The festival fosters community engagement and affords opportunities to artists from all backgrounds.
Glasgow Open House Arts Festival encourages artists to use alternative, domestic and public spaces to exhibit their art. By ‘removing’ art from conventional spaces, such as galleries and museums you can interact with the arts in a way that is accessible, engaging and exciting.
The festival has a vast programme of artists exhibiting their work in alternative spaces. Including:
