There are a number of arts projects in Glasgow East. The area has also a great cultural history with remains from the stone and bronze age, up to recent times, including important industrial, mercantile and historic places.

There is a vibrant scene for contemporary culture focused around the Bridge in Easterhouse, where local and national organisations have performances at Platform, the performance venue at the Bridge.
