Opportunity: Artist commission for Craigie Pocket Place, Perth

Could you create a piece of public art that helps people walking and cycling to find their way?

Sustrans, in partnership with Perth and Kinross Council, is looking for an ambitious artist who creates high-quality, innovative public artwork with community engagement at its core. Due to current physical distancing guidance, we are particularly interested in local artists who can travel safely and sustainably to Perth, or who can suggest a reasonable alternative method for researching and installing the project.

The team is looking for a site-specific piece of public art that helps people walking and cycling to find their way. The art should draw on the comments and ideas gathered through the Craigie Pocket Place public engagement process and help to point out important local places, as well as the National Cycle Network route. The artist should consider how the new artwork can be accessible ‘for everyone’, including blind and partially sighted people.

Notes of interest should be submitted by 31st January 2021.

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.
