A Glasgow arts venue has launched the line-up for their biggest festival yet as they prepare to turn their indoor and outdoor spaces into a live canvas.
SWG3’s Yardworks Festival on June 18 and 19 will feature a selection of events including mural painting, creative workshops, live art and food and drink.
Leading Scottish-based street artists including Smug, Mark Worst and KMG will be working side by side with some of the most celebrated names from around the globe such as Zurik, Bublegum, and Balstroem.
Mia McGregor will also return with The Cube installation, one of the biggest public art projects in Europe. With over 23,000 people involved to date, this inclusive, creative project is a chance for people of all ages and abilities to create their own unique ‘cube’, and be part of what will grow to become the world’s largest participatory artwork.
As well as witnessing live street art being created from scratch, the festival will offer interactive creative activities for young people, community workshops, and a range of street food and drinks to enjoy alongside it all.
It’ll also be the largest festival to date, with Eastvale Place closed off and used for painting, and SWG3’s two gallery spaces open with a unique exhibition created by street artists pushing the boundaries of what they can do.
Starting with a collection of limited edition prints by artists experimenting with the extremes of print-making practices, the exhibition will evolve to become a salon-style display across a range of mediums, from sculpture to inspired works.
In the lead-up to Yardworks Festival, across May and June, the 27 railway arches at SWG3 will be transformed with new artwork in a celebration of homegrown Scottish talent.
