Barras Art Design Centre (BAaD) is in the heart of Glasgow’s east end, the famous Barras Market. It is a unique place that houses several homegrown artists including jewellery makers, retro furniture restorers, photographers, fashion designers, and gin distillers. The space is a large internal courtyard area with an atrium that hosts a variety of events, restaurants, bars, shops, and studios. The idea was to kick start regeneration in the whole area when the Barras market became desolate and run down. The Barras is of hugely significant historical importance to Glasgow as the heart of the early entrepreneurship and merchants. The idea of BAaD is to help celebrate this, and encourage a wide range of people again to spend time in the area.
