North West Glasgow Arts Trail

The North West joins up to bring tepees, arts and outdoor adventures to the city!


Arts, Doors open day, teepees, urban hiking, murals, music, gardens and green spaces across Springburn, Royston, Possil, Maryhill, The Canal, Drumchapel and Milton.

The North West Glasgow Arts Trail is a one day event, part of Doors Open Day, exploring the North West of Glasgow. We want to make people more aware of all the great things going on in the North West. Find one of our maps online or elsewhere and follow trails on public transport routes – and the canal to discover beautiful buildings, arts activities, pop up teepees, community gardens, murals, musicians (on buses and the ground), woodlands and boat trips.

Meeting points: The number 75 opposite Cowcaddens Subway, the number 10 opposite Buchanan Bus Station and on the Forth and Clyde Canal at Applecross.

We want to get both local people and people from other parts of the city take part in the arts in The North and West of Glasgow and promote awareness of all the great things that are here. Many local groups have contributed to the trail by hand printing, sewing, telling stories, painting, sculpting, drilling.

First NWGAT Teepee


As part of the North West Glasgow Arts Trail, we have been commissioning teepees created by local artists and projects. These will be erected along our route on the 20th of September and will house an array of workshops. This week, we finalised the proposals and are looking forward to seeing some real gems popping up in our local area next month.

In addition, we have been diligently preparing our very own NWGAT teepee, made by recycling scrap fabric. After 21 hours, 23 metres worth of fabric, and what felt like 15,000 accidental pin pricks, we finally had a sheet that seemingly threatened to swallow us. If you look closely, you’ll be able to see part of an old pyjama shirt and a pillow case, so it should be exceedingly cosy!

Today, we gave our teepee a truly Scottish initiation by erecting it in the rain and using it as a temporary office. On Doors Open Day, you will be able to see and use this sustainable crafts teepee in Drumchapel.
