Benefactors' Scheme

Glasgow International Benefactors' Scheme

Glasgow International supports and commissions the work of exceptional artists, and shares their ideas with new and existing audiences, and is an integral part of the international arts calendar.  A contribution to Glasgow International allows us to achieve our aims and to contribute to the development and sustainability of a festival that is an example of the very best of visual arts both locally, and internationally.

Whether supporting from within Scotland, or internationally, your assistance directly contributes to supporting the work of artists, and their unique insight into the world in which we live.

Overall, Glasgow International has supported over 700 artists to create 275 shows attracting over 737,000 visits. In the first 7 editions of Glasgow International we have directly commissioned over 70 artists to create new work and supported 73 organisations to commission new work. More than 90% of the festival activity is completely free to attend.

The work we do is not possible without your support.  Please help us to continue supporting artists and audiences alike with our ambitious exhibitions and events that surround them.
