A public art commission located in North West Dumfries to create permanent artwork interventions as part of a new housing development in Lochside.

The Stove Network seeks a public artist, or designer to work as part of our Lochside Public Art Project (LPAP), an 18 month project to embed creative working and permanent artworks into the local environment, as part of an ongoing partnership and conversation with the community.
The Corners and Offcuts commission looks to create places to linger or pause, as a strategy for some of the ‘left over’ spaces between residential areas and thoroughfares. The commission will create a joined up and connected approach with other commissions as part of the wider LPAP.

The commission will connect with existing community projects that The Stove already has existing links with, including the local primary and secondary schools, #LIFT (Lochside is Families Together), The Family Centre and Community Councils etc

The Lochside Public Art Project has been commissioned by Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership, and is based within The Stove’s community-based project in NW Dumfries called Creative Futures:Lincluden and Lochside

The budget available for this project, including artist fees, all materials and installation is £30,000.
