Glasgow Why Festival

About Glasgow Why Festival

Brazenly looking to ride the wave of Glasgow International, GY (fka G_Aye) was conceived in 2016 in lieu of the formerly-annual Glasgow Open House Art Festival. Positioned as a grassroots alternative to Glasgow’s ‘world-renowned festival of contemporary art’, GY aims to showcase the spontaneity and fun that exists within the development of emerging local artists’ practices.

Having hosted a programme of successful events in our first edition, we return in 2018 with the same DIY ethos to stimulate a weekend of 40 exhibitions and happenings over a long weekend at the end of April that promote the incredible talents within the local community of artists.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Why Festival are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
