About Galoshans Festival

Galoshans is an arts festival with a strong focus on outreach and engagement. This year’s festival looks forward to welcoming the return of more in-person events, bringing art installations, film, theatre, live music, and much more to the heart of the community.

Karen Orr from Rig Arts, who have supported the festival for the past three years, said: “RIG Arts is delighted to be a part of the Galoshans Festival 2021 bringing creative, innovative fun to the Inverclyde Community.”

The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Climate’, linking with the globally significant 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP26, taking place in Glasgow this year. The 2021 programme offers inspiring creative opportunities with community participation at the core, featuring a range of local and national artists collaborating with the public to create work relating to the theme.
