Led by Green Minds, Mobility Hubs, the University of Plymouth and Low Carbon Devon project, and supported by Plymouth Culture, the Creative Commissions programme will produce a series of eight creative works. Each commission will have a separate brief, but will be produced and exhibited as part of an overarching series.
The commissions are open to creative industries in Devon. We encourage creatives from different disciplines and backgrounds to join us for our workshop and to apply.
This is an exciting opportunity for local creative people! Find out more and how to apply for the commissions at our online workshop today. To apply for a creative commission, you need to be registered on the Supplying the South West website by Friday 24 September.
We want to ensure all potential applicants for the creative commissions are confident to submit a proposal. The workshop will be hosted online via Zoom and will:
- give detail on the different creative commission briefs
- support proposal development and practical tips for applications led by Plymouth Culture
- facilitate collaborations
- have inspiring speakers including the Nature Connectedness Research Group, the University of Derby and project partners.
Visit the Eventbrite web page for further details and to register your place.
About Green Minds, Mobility Hubs and Low Carbon Devon
Green Minds is an Urban Innovative Actions (UIC) funded project which aims to better connect people to green and blue spaces within and around the city of Plymouth.
This innovative project is led by Plymouth City Council’s Strategic Planning and Infrastructure Department in collaboration with a range of local stakeholders including the University of Plymouth, Real Ideas Organisation, Plymouth College of Art, Devon Wildlife Trust, The Data Place and the National Trust. The project aims to improve the quality and condition of green and blue infrastructure. It also aims to positively enhance people’s interaction and involvement in these spaces, recognising that spending time in green and blue spaces has positive health and wellbeing benefits.
The Mobility Hubs are being delivered by Plymouth City Councils Low Carbon Team, funded by the Transforming Cities Fund. We aim to deliver up to 50 multi modal Mobility Hubs, creating a city wide network. This project aims to incorporate low carbon transport into shared transportation throughout Plymouth. We aim to reduce carbon emissions, improve air quality, reduce congestion, and improve connectivity across the city. To achieve these benefits, we recognise the importance of engagement and prompting behaviour change around transport choices, with residents and visitors.
The Creative Commission Programme is co-produced by the ERDF funded Low Carbon Devon project, helping enterprises to reach net-zero, at the Sustainability Hub in the Sustainable Earth Institute, University of Plymouth. The Low Carbon Devon project includes
the SKA Gold award winning retro fit of the Sustainability Hub, a
carbon reduction programme in the University buildings, a fully
funded knowledge exchange and a student/graduate
internship programme. The project is conducting research in the areas
of Green and Living Walls, Power Electronics and Solar PV, Energy
Efficient Buildings and Occupant Behaviour and the Creative
Industries’ engagement with the low carbon agenda.
