Glasgow 2014 Unveils Cultural Program

The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games organizing committee launched Tuesday it’s official Cultural Programme and unveiled its new brand that will promote the year’s countdown of events leading to the Commonwealth Games.

According to Glasgow 2014 the brand, designed by internationally acclaimed Scottish artist Jim Lambie, draws inspiration from the famous star-clad facade of Glasgow’s legendary east end venue, the Barrowland Ballroom, and utilizes Lambie’s characteristic approach to line, colour and popular culture.

The program runs from the “One Year to Go” milestone in July 2013 until the end of August 2014. It will showcase the best of Scottish culture alongside creative work from across the Commonwealth and will be a nationwide celebration of the Games.

The program features theatre, dance, music, visual arts, comedy and multi-media, intimate shows and outdoor spectaculars, work in theatres, community centres, on bicycles, by rivers, in botanic gardens, art galleries, cinemas, public spaces and much more, according to the organizing committee.
