Glasgow City Council

Outspoken Arts Scotland is regularly funded by Glasgow City Council.

Glasgow, with a population of around 600,000, is Scotland’s largest city and is the commercial capital of Scotland. It is the UK’s largest retail centre after London.

Situated in the Central Belt of Scotland on the west coast it is easily accessible by road, rail and air.

Glasgow is one of Europe’s top 20 financial centres and is home to many of Scotland’s leading businesses.

The city houses many wonderful municipal art galleries and museums, first class sports and leisure facilities; excellent theatres; an array of restaurants, pubs and clubs; and beautiful parks. Spectacular countryside and coastal views are within easy reach and the city is only 42 miles from Scotland’s capital city of Edinburgh.

The city is administered by Glasgow City Council with the municipal headquarters, the City Chambers, situated in George Square, at the heart of the city.

The City Council works with partner agencies including Scottish Enterprise, the Greater Glasgow and Clyde Valley Tourist Board, Greater Glasgow Health Board, public sector organisations, educational institutions and the private and voluntary sectors to raise the profile of the city and make it an attractive place to live in, study in, work in, or visit.
