What is Curate. Glasgow?

Curate. Glasgow is a discovery platform designed to bring together the best of Glasgow’s creative and independent talents.

Curate. was founded in 2020 by Southside resident, Kate Maxwell. She sought to create a dynamic online space for people to browse and discover Glasgow-based independent businesses. What exists now is a curated space of hand-selected artists, makers and shops from Glasgow and the surrounding area. 

Hand-picked by Kate, she discovers brands through social media, markets and personal recommendations. From fine jewellery to coffee shops, hand-poured candles to print studios, Curate provides an online space for creatives to be discovered and supported by their local community and beyond.
