WHAT IS HAPPENING IN SHAWLANDS?
Our Southtember initiative is about celebrating our local Southside businesses, asking you to make a special effort to support the shops on your doorstep for the month of September. For the last few years the shops in Shawlands have handed out branded tote bags as a thank you for the supporting these shops over the previous 12 months, this year we wanted to do something a bit different.......

MY SHAWLANDS ART TRAIL
We are delighted to announce the Shawlands Art Trail, a project that we have been working on for more than a year. Our ambitious plans will bring graffiti artists, illustrators, ceramicists, sculptors and designers from around the local area to add art and colour to the blank spaces of Shawlands over three phases. Projects range from small street level pieces up to large gable ends, all done with cooperation from building owners, tenants, Glasgow City Council as well as the artists that will be assigned each space.
Each artist has been selected based on their individual style, including emerging artists to those with international acclaim. We hope to ensure that the Shawlands Art Trail represents many cultures and perspectives while creating a collection of art that will resonate far and wide and so bring visitors to the area to enjoy for years to come.
The Shawlands Art Trial is being organised by My Shawlands, a Business Improvement District which is funded by the businesses of Shawlands and managed by a board of Shawlands business owners. This project has also been made possible by help and guidance from Gaz Mac from SWG3’s Yardworks Project, his input has been truly invaluable. We have received funding from Glasgow City Council Area Partnership and the Scottish Government Area Resilience Fund, secured by My Shawlands to make this huge project possible.
If you have any questions about the project you can get in touch with Lisa McLaughlin at Lisa@myshawlands.com or on 07722388726. Follow us on social media, instagram.com/myshawlands where you can also find regular updates of the project and the artists involved in creating the Shawlands
