Just a block away from The Briggait, also in Merchant City, is Trongate 103, another example of Glasgow’s innovative approach to stimulating contemporary arts. This is a place to see art, make art and to enjoy being creative. Opened in 2009, the ground and first floor of this former Edwardian warehouse building are the gallery floors, with a year round programme of exhibitions.
Trongate 103 also comprises galleries, workshops, artists’ studios and production spaces for the creation of art across genres, including printmaking, photography, digital media, film, video, kinetic sculpture, painting and ceramics.
As well as the exhibitions, educational and participative activities for young and old alike are on offer. These include practical workshops, talks, readings and performances.
