Glasgow Open House Art Festival

The Glasgow Open House Art Festival is a ten day festival running from 11- 21 April. The Festival aims to release art from its traditional places of exhibition, instead displaying the art in spaces that are more immediate to everyday living. Homes, gardens, sheds and more will become spaces in which to enjoy music, performance, workshops and symposiums alongside visual art. With over 70 participants in 36 venues throughout Glasgow, the festival aims to find new ways for visitors to engage with moving image and new media.
