Street Level is a leading photography arts organisation that provides artists and the public with a range of opportunities to make and engage with photography. We are a gallery and an open access photographic production facility, committed to quality and equality across all our activity. We provide a high quality artistic programme in the city of Glasgow that is challenging and accessible, local and international, diverse and highly individual.
Our programme’s reach is also extended through a growing partnership network of local, regional and national venues that we provide exhibitions for. We also devise and deliver education and outreach projects, which forge paths for lifelong learning and increase access to the arts for all who want to participate.
We have a retail area selling photographic magazines, self-published zines and books, alongside limited edition quality prints by artists both local and international. Visit our online shop for a selection of the work; a larger selection is available in-house.

Celebrating 33 Years: 1989 - 2022
Since being founded in 1989 by Glasgow Photography Group, a collective of photographers and those passionate about the medium, Street Level's core aim has remained consistent in providing people with a range of opportunities to engage with photography, as artists, participants, audiences, and sector partners. Over our history we have worked with a considerable number of artists and facilitators to deliver exhibitions, community collaborations, workshops, talks, residency exchanges and all manner of events in between that champion the diversity and creativity of photography from Scotland and further afield. This is not possible without the considerable support of many people and public agencies who are a part of this journey.
