GI Tompkins Performance 009

Applications for Glasgow International 2016’s programmes are now open to both international and Scottish artists based in Glasgow.

Applicants are encouraged to be ambitious in their proposals for projects, events and exhibitions which are additional to their current programmes. Glasgow International exists to support artistic activity across the city and further details about our aims can be found in the handbook.

There are four strands you can apply to – Supported, Open Glasgow, Open Glasgow Bursary and Across the City. These are explained in more detail below.

Successful proposals are selected by the Director in consultation with Glasgow International’s Artistic Advisory Committee. Open Glasgow & Bursary will be selected by a small panel from Glasgow and further afield.


The Supported Programme is a strand where organisations, groups or individuals can propose projects, events and exhibitions and request financial support from Glasgow International. Organisations need to demonstrate how this activity will be additional to their current programme, projects you would not otherwise be able to undertake.

OPEN GLASGOW | Deadline: 1 June

Open Glasgow is a fund specifically aimed at individual artists and curators to propose a project for Glasgow International. The total fund for Open Glasgow is £15,000 and this fund will be split across a number of projects as in previous years.

Artists should be currently based or have been educated in Scotland and should have at least 3 years professional experience.


The Open Glasgow Bursary is an award of £2,000 for a recent graduate or postgraduate who graduated two years or less from art school at the time of the festival in 2016.

Artists must be currently living or working in Glasgow and have studied for either an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in Scotland.


Glasgow International will consider proposals for any additional exhibitions, events, performances. Across the City programme proposals will not receive funding from the festival but form an integral part of the Glasgow International programme.
