Local groups & organisations across Glasgow are invited to submit proposals for temporary activation of stalled or underused open spaces in the city. Funding of up to £4,500 available.
Have an idea for the temporary activation and improvement of a stalled or underused open site in Glasgow?
With Stalled Spaces there is an opportunity to bring value to the activation of derelict spaces in the city through the use of arts, design, and cultural activity; creating connections between people and spaces and creating social, economic, environmental and cultural value in order to build more resilient communities for everyone.
Stalled Spaces are particularly interested in projects that:
• are imaginative in the processes employed to have the desired impact;
• contribute to the development of artistic practice, particularly where that involves working with site and community;
• demonstrate a clear and considered approach to public engagement which will create an effective dynamic between the artist(s), the community and the site involved.
For more information, and to submit an application, go to the Stalled Spaces website.
Closing Date for applications: Friday 18 August 2017

About Creative Carbon Scotland:
Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.
In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.
We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.
Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:
Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
