Opportunity: Green Year and Velocity Soundscapes Artist Commission

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

In order to facilitate community-led engagement in the city’s acoustic environment, the Soundscapes Initiative will commission an artist / creative team to work with a local community, schools and key organisations to create proposals to mark or highlight the city’s environmental protection work.

GCC/VELOCITY are seeking project proposals to highlight and raise public awareness of the city’s noise issues, working within one particularly official Quiet Area and/or linking the ten areas. Any work is required to be presented during May 2015: ‘being sound smart’ month.

Applicants must be Glasgow based – i.e. living or working in Glasgow. A total of £10,000 is available to the artists/creative team to deliver this commission; including all fees, expenses, materials, exhibition/presentation costs and VAT.

This opportunity is a collaboration between Glasgow City Council’s Green Year 2015 and VELOCITY. Full details and application form available at: http://www.glasgow.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=12207

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.
