Creativity on the Clyde

Creativity is key to our waterfront regeneration plan.

People have been putting their own stamp onto the waterfront in so many different ways - through creativity, ingenuity and inventiveness.

Trongate 103, in Glasgow's Merchant City, is providing a focus for the arts in the city centre. The stunning building has been converted from an Edwardian warehouse. It provides studio space for artists as well as a great place to visit.

Also in the Merchant City, the Briggait has now been transformed into 5,500 sq m of public and private space including 69 workspaces for visual artists and cultural organisations.

From community arts projects such as the Gorbals Arts Project to imaginative schemes such as HoldYourBreath, the River Clyde has a major part to play in the artistic life of Scotland.

At the same time, stunning architecture and innovative building projects such as the Riverside Museum by avant garde architect, Zaha Hadid, and the impressive SSE Hydro arena, also have a major role to play in the physical revitalisation of the waterfront.
