Opportunity: Outdoor arts and mixed media commissions

Paid commissions for pop-up outdoor arts and mixed media installations in Renfrewshire.

Renfrewshire Leisure wish to commission a series of innovative pop-up outdoor arts and mixed media installations to be explored from the cycle paths of Renfrewshire between Paisley and Lochwinnoch under social distancing guidelines during Autumn 2020.

The installation experiences will be digitised for online access and then showcased for a longer period at our Cycle Arts Festival in 2021. Our cycle paths have renewed significance in these times of COVID-19 lockdown and we are aiming to celebrate their unique value as open spaces which can be enjoyed by everyone, promoting wellbeing and giving access to green space and wild land.

Funding between £1000 to £5000 is available for artists or organisations submitting innovative visual / mixed media proposals which meet the commission brief.

The outdoor arts / mixed media commissions are for significant outdoor installations that push boundaries of experimentation and capture distinctive narratives of place for Renfrewshire. The work can explore contemporary themes including how we respond to the COVID19 pandemic, reflect on climate adaptation, celebrate cycling and reflect on wellbeing. We are looking for high-quality arts installations with contemporary vision, uniqueness and positive progressive thinking on social change.

To apply please complete the application form, monitoring form and upload your supporting artwork/film /showcase.

For more information contact Renfrewshire Place Partnership, Muriel Ann Macleod, Creative Producer.

Deadline for applications: 5pm, Friday 17th July 2020

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.
