MANY is a creative organisation founded in 2010 as a not-for-profit business focused on providing affordable work space to recent graduates and some of the city’s most talented start up creative practitioners. We currently have 33 unique studio spaces and over 50 members as well as supporting a number of projects including The Telfer Gallery and the MANY Graduate Residency Programme. MANY Studios are currently working with Glasgow City Council redeveloping a property in the East End of Glasgow. In September 2015, MANY will relocate from their current Merchant City location to a new site in Glasgow’s historic Barras. The refurbishment of the 10,000 sq ft ‘Charlie's Market’ building on Ross Street will introduce 40 artist studios, 2 galleries and an independent coffee shop to the area. The organisation provides an extensive creative and cultural network, fostering a vibrant community of creative practitioners. MANY provides an environment conducive to professional development, enhancing understanding and awareness of national and international contemporary arts practice. As well as supporting professional development opportunities through constructive informal dialogue and an accessible programme of participative, critical and creative projects.
