Have an idea for the improvement and activation of a stalled or underused open space in Glasgow?
We are keen to encourage projects that are community driven, that use art and the creative process to help deliver the aspirations of the Stalled Spaces initiative in imaginative and innovative ways, and that respond to the unique characteristics of the site/s selected and the communities in which they are situated.
We are particularly interested in projects that:
â€¢ are imaginative in the processes employed.
â€¢ create meaningful opportunities for artists and creative people to work with other professionals, within communities.
â€¢ will act as exemplar projects to inspire and influence future practice for artists and creative people, within communities.
â€¢ will have a deep and genuine engagement with people and place and will demonstrate the value of creativity and public engagement as a regenerative tool.
â€¢ will contribute to the activation of Stalled Spaces in Glasgow, for the benefit of local communities.
The range of projects that will be considered can include those that are artist-led, those that are community driven and those that bring art and the creative process into regeneration.
Funding of up to Â£4,500 available (Â£1,000 minimum). Need to be a constituted & not-for-profit group to apply.
For more information, application criteria, forms, guidance, inspirational examples and a look at past projectsÂ please visit our web page.
Interested groups are encouraged toÂ get in touch for pre-application discussion and advice.

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 publicâ€™s emotions, values and ideas.
