Upcoming Events

Creative Festive Gathering

Thurs 14 Dec, 6 - 9pm @ Civic House, Glasgow

Join us for a relaxed evening of food, refreshments, music and mingling!

After last year’s sell out success we’re thrilled to once again invite you to this in person festive gathering. Creative freelancers and those working for smaller organisations don’t always have the chance to come along to a festive party and celebrate our hard work together so this is for you.

This will be a lovely, informal opportunity to connect with fellow Glasgow Connected Arts Network members, meet other Glasgow creatives and enjoy the festive vibes together.

Party nibbles and drinks (including vegan, gluten free alcoholic and non-alcoholic options) will be available as part of your ticket. We recommend a pay-what-you-can contribution of between £5 – £15 for this event to help us cover some costs and to support the network.
