Opportunity for Artists: Open Call for SFRM

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

Spring Fling Rural Mural was launched in 2014 to huge acclaim and appreciation. The project saw 11 artists collaborate to produce numerous large murals across the region on buildings, vehicles and unusual objects. Upland has again joined forces with urban art specialists, Recoat, to grow and evolve this innovative project.

Call Out for SFRM Artists

We are looking for Upland artists to take part. We need artists who are interested in collaboration and open to working with others to learn new skills and create concepts.

The artists will collaborate to create large-scale murals in both D&G and the Recoat artist’s home city. Therefore we need artists who have some experience of painting and obviously experience of painting larger works would be of benefit, but it is not essential.

The murals in D&G will be painted between the 2nd– 17th April and the murals in other cities after Spring Fling 2016 in the summer.

Please email your CV, a statement that outlines why you would like to take part in the project (no more than 1 side A4) and up to 8 example images of your work to (joanna@spring-fling.com).

The deadline for SFRM applications is Monday 25th January 2016.

Previous SFRM applicants and participants can apply but should explain clearly in their statement why they should be considered again. Non-member applications welcome (membership needed if successful). SF 2016 participants who have noted interest in taking part in their application should send a statement outlining why you would like to take part. No images necessary.

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.
