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

Brandon Ballengée, a visual artist and biologist, will exhibit sculptural installations and photographs at Ronald Feldman Fine Arts in his first major solo exhibition in New York.  The exhibition, Collapse: The Cry of Silent Forms, consists of three bodies of work that explore the effect of ecological degradation on marine life and avian and amphibian populations.  Synthesizing scientific inquiry with art-making, Ballengée transforms his field research into metaphors that reduce life to its essentials.

Tim Flannery speaks in Edinburgh

This post comes to you from EcoArtScotland

Scott Donaldson at Creative Scotland wanted ecoartscotland to highlight this opportunity to hear Tim Flannery (mammalogist, palaeontologist, environmentalist and global warming activist) speak:

6pm Wednesday 4th April, Royal Society of Edinburgh.

Tim Flannery is one of Australia’s leading thinkers and writers. As a scientist, explorer and conservationist his achievements are many. Amongst them are the discovery of over thirty new species of mammal, being honoured Australian of the Year in 2007, co-founding and chairing the Copenhagen Climate Council, and selling over a million copies of his book The Weather Makers, one of the most influential texts in our understanding of global warming.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Tim speak about his extensive work.

The event is jointly presented by the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the Royal Commonwealth Society’s Oxygen Programme and Creative Scotland’s Creative Futures programme.
