Glasgow Open House Arts Festival is a non-profit artist-led organisation that aims to improve access to the arts in three main ways: offering opportunities for artists from all backgrounds, expanding community engagement with art and providing new meaningful ‘spaces’ to engage with art and ideas. The organisation was founded in order to meet the practical needs of the city’s grassroots artistic community. Taking its lead from Glasgow’s already prevalent ‘Do-it-yourself’ culture in relation to visual art and music, Glasgow Open House Art Festival provides a platform for artists both new and established, opening up their practices — and in many instances, their homes — to new audiences. We are currently working towards a socially distanced festival programme in Autumn from the 24th-27th of September 2021.
