Paisley Windows on COP26

Call for Artists.

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 1-12th November 202.

The artists will work collaboratively with local shops and businesses in the Paisley First District to develop window installations which push boundaries of experimentation to capture distinctive narratives on climate issues specific to Renfrewshire.  The work can use mixed artforms 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 which have contemporary vision, uniqueness and positive progressive thinking on climate action and social change.

A fixed fee is available to each artist for the development, support and delivery on a collection of windows of during Oct 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
