Art for a Changing City
VELOCITY: art for a changing city is a collective and cultural response to the impact of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games on the city and its communities.
At the heart of VELOCITY is an aspirational approach to partnership working. Initiated by Glasgow Life, Glasgow City Council, Creative Scotland and Clyde Gateway Urban Regeneration Company, VELOCITY seeks to re-imagine, repair and reconnect the physical and social fabric of the city, using the unique contexts offered by hosting the Games.
The VELOCITY Operational Plan, published in April 2012, outlines a framework and methodology to link the city and its communities through an art in the public domain programme. A unique approach of layering, connecting and mapping has resulted in a fascinating portrait of the city that underpins a series of Action Plans, and will inform future VELOCITY projects.
