Call for artists to take part in an ambitious public art programme in partnership with Vastint.
We are working in partnership with international real estate organisation, Vastint, to deliver an ambitious public art programme as part of their building development in Fountainbridge, Edinburgh 2019/2020.
This programme will respond to the unique social and industrial heritage of the area. It will also be informed by a recent community consultation report that sets out a vision for a green public realm, promoting wellbeing, natural places to play and unwind, as well as areas for plants, trees and wildlife to flourish.
These permanent commissions will be integral to the architectural design and planning process of Vastintâ€™s development.
Deadline for Notes of Interest
18 August 2019

The post Artist Opportunity â€“ Public Art Commissions in Edinburgh appeared first on Creative Carbon Scotland.
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.
