Creating Spaces of Memory and Reflection in Argyll and Bute
Interest invited from Oban, Lorne & Isles and Mid-Kintyre & Isles
Proposals of small and large scale welcome
Commissions available - either 1 commission to maximum £15k or 2 small commissions at £7.5k
Fee: Scottish Artists Union Rates will be applied
Duration: The project will end in July/August 2024
This work will include 2 key stages:
Reflect is an exciting opportunity for artists or practitioners to work collectively with local communities to support the delivery of Remembering Together in Argyll and Bute (2023-2024). Submissions are welcome from artists working in partnership with local community/heritage gardens, arts & heritage trails and/or development trusts to design and build areas for memory and reflection.
Reflect builds on the outcomes of the first phase of the Remembering Together consultation carried out in Argyll and Bute by Lateral North, where the majority of participants noted the importance that the outdoors and natural environment played in supporting the mental health of our communities during the pandemic.
Reflect has a two-fold approach:
One: the creation of new spaces for reflection/artworks at a total of four distinct sites
Two: The celebration of achievement to take place on Our Community Reflects Day, July/August 2024
Commissions are available in the following areas:
Oban, Lorne and Isles and Mid-Kintyre and Isles
For further details and information about how to apply, please see the job description.
Deadline: 5.00pm, 17th November
Should Community travel/access and hospitality support be included in my own budget proposal, or are these additional funds that will be available in addition to the total 15,000?
Community travel/engagement access £1,500
Hospitality, Our Community, Reflects Day £1,500
Early maintenance of works £1,000
Each project will also receive in-kind development and communications and marketing support.
This and any other potential assistance will be further discussed with shortlisted candidates at interview.
