Tramway is an international art-space which commissions, produces and presents contemporary arts projects. 

Tramway Volunteer Arts Assistants are involved in supporting Tramway’s Public Engagement programme, assisting with gallery tours, workshops, events, discussions and drop-in activities.  If you have an interest in contemporary art and in supporting others to take part in creative activities then we want to hear from you!

The packed upcoming season of Tramway includes:

- Dance International Glasgow (DIG), a biennial festival of dance for Glasgow and Scotland featuring popular and renowned companies from across the UK and beyond. The programme includes performances and work by Siobhan Davies Dance; Scottish Ballet; James Cousins Company; Shobanah Jeyasingh; Scottish Dance Theatre; Joan Clevillé Dance and Mark Murphy.

Exhibition Programme including:

Florian Hecker -  Both abstract and material, Florian Hecker’s work is informed by the technical manipulation of sound; yet in their realization as installation, the pieces produce rich subjective sensory experiences that evade categorization. Hecker's new commission for Tramway continues his explorations into the dramatization of digital sound, using algorithms to create an immersive spatial composition. 

Beatrice Shultz –  Emerging Glasgow-based artist Beatrice Loft Schulz will present new work at Tramway after being selected following a new open submission opportunity, Tramway Open. Beatrice Loft Schulz studied at Chelsea College of Art and Goldsmiths College. Her work has been shown in London, Madrid, Berlin, France and Glasgow including in exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery and the ICA.

Tschabalala Self - Tramway presents a solo exhibition by American artist Tschabalala Self which draws together works drawn from the first five years of her artistic career. Primarily concerned with the concept of the Black female body within contemporary culture, Self examines the confluence of race, gender and sexuality through a variety of forms and narratives in which each subject – or as she prefers, character – expresses an individually powerful identity.
