MANY Studios is a creative organisation founded in 2010 as a not-for-profit business focused on providing affordable work space to recent graduates and some of the city’s most talented start up creative businesses. We currently have 40 unique spaces and over 60 members as well as supporting a number of projects including The Telfer Gallery and the MANY Graduate Residency Programme. We also have a number of event and meeting spaces and produce an annual arts programme.
Between 2013 - 2016, MANY Studios worked with Glasgow City Council to redevelop a property in the East End of Glasgow. In April 2016, we relocated from our Merchant City location to a new site in Glasgow’s historic Barras. The refurbishment of the 10,000 sq ft ‘Charlie's Market’ building on Ross Street introduced 40 artist studios, 2 galleries, event and residency facilities and two shop units for varied use, long and short term lets.
The organisation provides an extensive creative and cultural network, fostering a vibrant community of creative practitioners. MANY provides an environment conducive to professional development, enhancing understanding and awareness of national and international contemporary arts practice. As well as supporting professional development opportunities through constructive informal dialogue and an accessible programme of participative, critical and creative projects.
