Creative Scotland have announced a call for proposals for public art research and development projects.
“The fund’s purpose is to support the initial research and scoping of a range of public art projects and approaches to provide opportunities for communities across Scotland to engage with the development of creative places through imaginative, artist-led projects. The aim of the investment is to open opportunities for the public of Scotland to engage with artists in a wide range of public art activity. We want to encourage high quality and imaginative projects that contribute to successful places, build new audiences and extend the diversity of public art practice. In 2011/12 there is a budget of £150,000 available.”
