Opportunity: artists’ commissions – Paisley Windows on COP26

Call for visual artists to work on climate action windows for Paisley.

Renfrewshire Leisure in collaboration with Paisley First are seeking to commission three visual artists to work with Paisley local shops and businesses to create stunning LED lit window designs highlighting the climate action issues significant to Renfrewshire during COP26 (1st-12th November 2021).

The artists will work collaboratively with local shops and businesses in the Paisley First District to develop window installations that push boundaries of experimentation to capture distinctive narratives on climate issues specific to Renfrewshire.

The work can use mixed art forms to explore contemporary themes around how we respond to climate adaptation, and what actions we can take at an individual or collective level to make change. We are looking for high-quality imaginative window installations that have contemporary vision, uniqueness and positive progressive thinking on climate action and social change.

fixed fee is available to each artist for the development, support and delivery of a collection of windows during October 2021. Use of eco-managed materials is also an important element and a materials budget will support the work.

To apply please respond to the Paisley Windows on COP26 Commission Brief and complete the application form, monitoring form and upload supporting artwork links.

Deadline: 29th September 2021 at 5pm

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.
