Owning Our Future: Viewpark Glen
Viewpark Glen in Lanarkshire commissioned 2 artists to produce a map of the future and an animation. They had just received a Scottish Land Fund grant which enabled their community purchase of the 175 acres of land which was the former Douglas Support Estate to preserve it for use by the local community. Their aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of local people and develop its value as a local educational and recreational resource in community ownership. In Viewpark people were asked about the land, how it was used during the pandemic and what they wanted from it; all of which informed a short film that was produced to accompany the main project outputs of a map and signage.
