Glasgow Connected Arts Network CiC (Glasgow CAN) is the cultural hub for the advancement of Participatory Arts in the City.

 

Glasgow CAN CiC is invested in encouraging and maintaining public engagement, awareness and understanding of Participatory Arts in Glasgow. We facilitate skills and resource sharing, and the exchange of ideas, offering our Members and the wider community access to invaluable training, partnership and networking opportunities.
With a Membership growing weekly; we encourage collaboration and connection between artists and communities across Glasgow, and support projects which seek to reach and engage new audiences. We aim to increase participation and learning in arts projects, to promote and advance the economic, social and cultural development of Glasgow, and reflect the diverse communities within it.

DIVERSE REPRESENTATION

We support work which celebrates and recognises our differences and promotes equality and inclusion; with the aim to increase access to the arts for marginalised communities.  We support and encourage projects which specifically involves work with groups including but not limited to: Refugees & Asylum Seekers, the LBGT+ community, young people, women’s groups, the elderly, and those with ill health or disabilities.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]

REACH

 

We support work which extends the reach of Artists and Organisations to communities which do not have adequate access to the arts. This may be due to isolation, geography, socio-economic status and other barriers. The projects and members we support must have a focus on participation, sharing learning with others. By working together as a creative community we will develop guidelines, share learning and reach communities where there is low provision of creative activity.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]

CONNECT

 

We seek to bring people together to promote and develop Participatory Arts. We will actively support Artists and Organisations to work with each other and communities through partnership initiatives. Work which have a clear plan to share learning and information are particularly encouraged.

Our regular Connect networking events and Training Programme offer opportunities for practitioners and organisations to meet with each other, share ideas and to find ways of working together to benefit communities across Glasgow.
