Being Human Festival

Explore New Worlds in Glasgow

Glasgow is a city known for its capacity for invention and reinvention. A city of empire addressing our colonial past. A city of radicals who take pride in our ancient heritage. We explore digital futures in Scotland’s oldest public museum. New Worlds: Glasgow is a cultural festival which calls on this unique Glaswegian spirit to reimagine a new world for ourselves. Through film, art, poetry, gaming and music (not to mention Buffalo Bill!) we invite you to join us to consider how the arts can continue to let Glasgow – and our world – flourish.
