This post comes to you from EcoArtScotland

Ever thought of using an unused open space in Glasgow for a:

  • green gym/ play/ outdoor exercise
  • pop up sculpture
  • exhibition space
  • outdoor education
  • arts project
  • event space
  • urban beach
  • pop up park
  • growing space
  • or any innovative idea

Glasgow City Council now invites applications for the Community Support for Stalled Spaces fund.

Funding is available from a minimum of £1,000 to a maximum of £2,500.

Closing Date for applications: 27th of August.

Proposals should follow the guidelines/criteria as laid out in the following link which also contains inspiring examples and a first point of contact for anyone who wishes to apply for funding:

www.glasgow.gov.uk/stalledspaces

Proposals must take place within the Glasgow City Council Boundary.  Development & Regeneration Officers can assist community groups to complete their applications.  Hard copies of application forms are available on request.

Last year the initiative assisted 42 projects resulting in over 15 hectares of land being brought back into temporary use (the equivalent of 22 international football pitches) and supporting groups to attract match funding totalling approx £500,000

The Birds is set in a landfill/crow’s nest, and inhabited by half-puppet half-man trash art creations, our protagonist’s seeks fortune with a plan that hinges on Man’s “out of sight out of mind,” mentality. The old adage, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” rings true and he prevails by defeating his enemies with their own greed.
