ARC Independent

ARC Independent registered CIC No. 569812

ARC Independent is an artist led, non-profit group cultivating a supportive and collaborative environment for both independent and group creative activity that can engage and mutually benefit our wider community, both local to the Southside of Glasgow and globally.


Developing as a part static, part nomadic structure, creative studios form a foundation that can provide space, finance and support for a communal workshop where different creative practices cross-over and reach out into our immediate neighbourhood and an an off-site programme of workshops, exhibitions and live events.


We provide mixed use studio space with a communal workshop run as a co-operative and open to anyone who has the need for basic tools and extra space to make. Growing gradually from our initial setup in 2017 through 2018 when we built the studios, and expanded through 2019 as we began working with our neighbours at McNeills. We consist of a mix of artists and makers, keen to develop connections with like minded people in Scotland and internationally.

If you think your artistic practice or social activity could benefit from and/or complement this kind of energy please send us an email:
