Welcome to Art & Living: Laurieston
This website is a work in progress. As it evolves, it will archive all research to date, evidencing the current live opportunities, as well as the works in progress in the various phases of the Art Strategy, as it develops over the next 5 to 10 years.
Presented here currently, is the MAP of 20 key opportunities, which have been identified for art and artists and others, to engage with this significant area- located between the Gorbals and Tradeston, on the South side of the River Clyde in Glasgow. These opportunities have emerged from a creative process of conversation and workshops with principal partners, community groups, local historians, artists and individuals, encountered during research into this development.
An INDEX to this MAP will shortly be added, which will explain how the individual ideas are to be realised and through what commissioning process. It is also here that visitors will be able to log an expression of interest in the process, and, very importantly, become involved- as makers, co-producers and audience to the works. We will be putting out a call for expressions of interest for the first of these projects in November 2013.
In the near future, the website will put all the research undertaken in creating this Art Strategy for Laurieston in context- including the architect’s Masterplan for the area, the vision statement, case studies, sample contracts, employment policies, a fundraising strategy and a partner database.
