The inaugural Craft Biennale Scotland, to take place at the City Art Centre from May to July 2018, is now open for applications. With the theme Response to Place, this is an open international exhibition, that will be selected from applications by four curators from Scotland, Norway, Korea and Australia.
Craft Biennale Scotland is the idea of Tina Rose, founder and director of Really Interesting Objects CIC, an enterprise established to ‘bring together quality crafts practices with innovative approaches to engaging new audiences’.
Artistic Concept: ‘Response to Place’
Artists are invited to submit work that responds to a place where they live, remember or imagine, or that contributes to individual identity or nationality, and ways in which we create and express our ‘place’ in the world.
Responses may be overlapping and multi-faceted, and might for example, include visual or other sensory responses to their environment; local materials and indigenous craft practices; cultural and ceremonial traditions; experiences related to migration, political or social upheaval; local and social history; geography; archaeology or how particular forms have developed through interaction with materials or have been designed to perform a particular function.
To check the guidelines and timetable, and to register and complete the application form,please visit the website.
Deadline for Entries: Friday 1 December 2017, 5pm GMT
If you have any queries regards the submission process and guidelines, then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
