Our Story


What we do

Platform is the arts centre at the heart of The Bridge, located in Easterhouse, offering a year-round programme of cutting edge performance, music, visual arts and participation. Platform views culture and creativity as a bedrock of a healthy and inclusive society. Our work is rooted in our location and engages directly with our audiences. We work with a range of local and national partners to bring together communities and artists. Platform is proud to be an accredited Living Wage Employer.

How we do it

In addition to our programme of performance, festivals, gigs, exhibitions and events Platform offers a variety of ways to get involved.


We work outside our building. Platform takes a dynamic programme of performance, projects and activities directly to partners based in diverse range venues right across Glasgow and beyond. We create possibilities for communities and artists to come together to shape our programme and voice their creativity.

Taking Part

Creativity is in us all. Platform’s Taking Part programme provides a wide choice of regular sessions for children, young people and adults looking to develop their creative skills, including music classes, artists’ talks and our performance and visual art workshops.


Artists provide the creative spark. Platform commissions and co-produces with a range of artists. We are keen to support artists at all stages of their careers to develop their work, particularly those working within a participatory or socially engaged setting.


Partnership is central to our work. Platform benefits from working with a diverse range of partners. From statutory service providers to third sector organisations and public housing providers. Our creative partners include artist collectives, production companies, festivals and cultural venues.

Where we do it
Platform is the arts centre at the heart of The Bridge located in Easterhouse, Glasgow. The Bridge is a unique, award-winning building that also encompasses a Glasgow Life swimming pool and library and the Glasgow Kelvin College campus.
“More often than not the space is alive with community activity. The gorgeous performance hall at the heart of the centre channels a subtle dance-hall aesthetic, and is designed in a way that allows for a generous amount capacity-wise, yet preserves an intimacy and immediacy more often associated with smaller venues.”
