Commissioned in partnership with the venue’s charity, Clydeside Initiative for Arts (CIA), the vast majority of our year-round arts programme is a feast of visual art and community events, with an emphasis on contemporary artists and international commissions.



Founded in 2004, Yardworks has grown from a burning desire to champion the often stigmatised practice of street arts and graffiti to a globally-respected, ever-expanding creative programme, connecting and supporting people and ideas from across the Clyde, to across the globe.



From individual artist studios to an open plan design studio, fully-equipped photography studio and more, our studio spaces are a hotbed of creativity, home to a diverse community of local creatives from designers to motion graphics experts to copywriters.



Community consultation workshops to help plan our new garden. A vibrant street arts district stretching across Yorkhill, Partick and Govan, for everyone to be inspired by. A revolving billboard space for artists to make their mark... Explore the creative projects we’re currently working on.
