The Arches

Charity description

The Arches logo
The Arches is a multi-arts venue in Glasgow city centre dedicated to nurturing tomorrow's bravest and most risk-taking artists.

For the 250,000 people who pass through our doors each year the Arches represents something entirely different. A night club, a gig venue, a space for experimental performance, perhaps all three. Whatever it is, at the heart of every experience is the Arches’ fundamental objective: to nurture and develop the boldest, most exciting artistic ideas of today.

Few people realise the Arches is a not-for-profit registered charity. All profits from our gigs and club nights, bars, café and corporate events are reinvested in the arts and creative learning programme. Funding from Creative Scotland and Glasgow City Council accounts for only 15% of our annual turnover with the balance self-generated through the activities of the charity and its retail operations. Economic austerity measures are impacting on the arts sector and the prevailing challenging financial climate means we must look at
alternative funding methods to maintain the volume and quality of work we currently support.

Charity No: SC018039
