Scottish Ballet’s Housing Furore

Scottish Ballet thought it ha found a perfect new home at Glasgow’s struggling Tramway. “It seems like a good idea. Scottish Ballet could fill empty spaces, it could open up possibilities of engagement with local communities and give Tramway a firmer purpose in Glasgow’s cultural landscape. But it has caused a furore. Part of the scheme would be to turn Tramway’s largest hall, currently an exhibition space, into a scenery store. This has enraged Glasgow’s visual artists. It’s a shoo-in, they say, rigged without proper consultation or process, and the accusations of conspiracy are flying.”
