Trails and Tales - Call for Artists

Collective Architecture have been working with East Dunbartonshire Leisure and Culture Trust to develop a series of 11 outdoor walking Heritage and Arts Sculpture trails. Each route has a number of heritage stops and locations, some of which will feature art works.

EDLC are now looking to appoint a range of artists across various mediums and disciplines to work with us to develop a number of small but exciting commissions. Experience of delivering community engagement & developing and creating publicly sited art works would be an advantage, however, applications from emerging artists, or artists with an interest in moving into the sphere of public art work, are also encouraged. We are particularly interested in artists who have experience or an interest in creating work which is site specific and/or draws inspiration from aspects of local history, local tales and heritage.

Appointed artists will be awarded up to £15,000 per commission for artist’s fee, expenses, production & install costs. Artists will work closely with the T&T team including Collective Architecture.

The deadline for applications is 31st January, more information can be found here.
