Become a Patron of Glasgow International

GI Patrons make a significant contribution to the festival, and become part of a vital network of close friends that are in return brought into the inner workings of the festival and our artists.

Our Patrons make a difference to empower artists by supporting their vision, innovation, ambition and ideas with an opportunity to become more closely connected to the curatorial team, the artist and their work.

Your support will also help to raise the growing status of the festival and how it is recognised within the wider artistic community, at home, nationally and internationally. Your support will also provide the financial backing that enables us to find and commission new talent, but also support the careers of more established artists to make work that they would otherwise not be able to make.

As a Patron of GI you have a choice of three levels of support, each providing enhanced access to the festival and our exciting programme of artists.
