Opportunity: Artist callout – The Leap

The Leap is seeking applications for artist/s to co-create a living wall in the Bradford District.

The Leap is seeking applications for one artist or team of artists working together to participate in a new experimental, open submission arts campaign. The Leap aims to use this pilot project as an example to engage other partners to help create many more Change Space installations across the city.

With funding support from The Emerald Foundation and Bradford 2025, the project aims to bring together local communities with an artist to co-create an example of how living walls can create community cohesion and inspire community pride using a relatively low-cost solution to greening, and improving the liveability of Bradford’s built-up areas.

The selected artist(s) will support the creation of an outdoor living wall, led by members of the community. The location, style, and form of the wall will be decided by community members, the successful artist will advise and co-create the project. Community members will lead on creating the installation and will be selected through an open callout for proposals once the successful artist is in place. The proposals will be independently assessed by The Leap Community Assessment Panel and involve the artist throughout the process.

Open to artists with experience creating horticultural or architectural artwork. The total cost of the artist fee is £3,000, with an additional £200 for travel. A budget of £10,000 will be awarded to the successful community-led project.

Closing date for applications: 29th April 2022.

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.
