Urban Journeys in Community Ownership


Community Land Scotland are looking for artists to work closely with Urban Community Landowners: Govanhill Baths, Bridgend Farmhouse and Greener Kirkcaldy for a new project Urban Journeys. This call-out is for three separate commission opportunities (please see individual briefs in links) to work collaboratively with these Urban Community Landowners and creatively, visually or otherwise, tell their individual journeys of “ownership” and its relevance and impact for each trust’s work and place.

Urban Journeys aims to dig down into these individual stories of ownership both for the urban landowners themselves, their communities and for others who are inspired to learn more about the impact community ownership can have for our local places. Artists will work closely within their commission to creatively tell, and find active ways to share, these stories to inspire and be a resource for other groups and communities in exploring the possibilities of ownership for themselves.

Community Land Scotland will be the commissioning body but we are working with The Stove Network to support selection and coordination/management of this project.
