In addition to its world-class music programme, SWG3 boasts an ambitious year-round arts programme delivered throughout the complex 135 000 square feet of studios, warehouses and outdoor space. 

Commissioned in partnership with the venue’s charity, CIA (Clydeside Initiative for Arts Ltd) the vast majority of the programme isnot-for-profit and designed to nurture Glasgow’s vibrant arts and cultural sectors. Featuring everything from festivals and art fairs to exhibitions and educational workshops, the programme is a feast of visual art and community events; with an emphasis on contemporary artists and international commissions.
