Climate Storyline Artist Commission
Làn Thìde alongside Adaptation Scotland and the Met Office, are delighted to invite artists, creative practitioners or designers to submit proposals to co-create an Outer Hebrides Climate Storyline piece. A £5,000 commission is available to creatives who live in the Outer Hebrides or who have a strong connection to the place or community across the Islands.
Phase 1 of the commission will be to co-develop a creative Climate Storyline, using Met Office analysis of how the frequency and intensity of winter storm events in the Outer Hebrides are likely to change in future, and combining this with lived experience of storm impacts from local communities.
Phase 2 will be working with the project partners to use the Storyline to engage communities and collectively begin planning for a region wide process of adapting to the effects of climate change.
We are looking for artists or creative practitioners at any point in their career and invite proposals in a range of media. If you are interested in working with us on this exciting and innovative opportunity, please visit get in touch with questions or submit your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline of 9am on 10 Jan 2022.
Làn Thìde is a collective of arts, heritage, community, environmental and third sector organisations, located in the Outer Hebrides, established to create a programme of public engagement focused on climate change and developed with community collaboration at it’s core.
