Outdoor Arts & Mixed Media Commissions 2020 / 2021- Call Outs

Renfrewshire Leisure wish to commission a series of innovative Pop Up Outdoor Arts and Mixed Media installations to be explored from the cycle paths of Renfrewshire between Paisley and Lochwinnoch under Social Distancing guidelines during Autumn 2020. The Installation experiences will be digitised for online access and then showcased for a longer period at our Cycle Arts Festival in 2021. Our Cycle Paths have renewed significance in these times of COVID-19 lockdown and we are aiming to celebrate their unique value as open spaces which can be enjoyed by everyone, promoting wellbeing and giving access to green space and wild land.

Funding between £1000 to £5000 is available for Artists or organisations submitting innovative visual / mixed media proposals which meet the commission brief.

The Outdoor Arts / Mixed Media commissions are for significant outdoor installations which push boundaries of experimentation and capture distinctive narratives of place for Renfrewshire.  The work can explore contemporary themes including how we respond to the COVID19 pandemic, reflect on climate adaptation, celebrate cycling and reflect on wellbeing. We are looking for high quality arts installations with contemporary vision, uniqueness and positive progressive thinking on social change.
