Established in 2015, Civic Room is a non-profit contemporary art gallery housed in a former British Linen Bank built in 1897 and located in the east end of Glasgow. The year round programme promotes outstanding contemporary visual art through commissioning new work and projects by early career and established artists.

To support the core exhibitions programme, Civic Room works with a diverse range of partner organisations and collaborators to deliver an events programme including  performances, talks, workshops and film screenings within the gallery and across the city.

Civic Room promotes knowledge exchange through collaborative research and interdisciplinary projects and seeks to share a critical engagement between artists and communities amidst the built environment of High Street.
