Glasgow Life celebrates launch of new Create4Glasgow initiative

On the opening week of Cop26, Glasgow Life and Glasgow City Council's education services have launched an exciting Open Call inviting young people to create an artwork sharing their ideas for helping their city to fight climate change.

Participants will have until 1 December to submit an artwork responding to one of 3 priorities chosen by young people surveyed in Glasgow - air pollution, water pollution, and some of the planet becoming uninhabitable. To enter, young people will share their artworks online with #Create4Glasgow, or upload their file to the project website.

The best 12 projects - selected by a local and international jury – will form the basis of a project led by Glasgow Life’s 23 Artists in Residence, delivering community workshops across the city from November until March 2022, to make one project concrete in their ward.

Create4Glasgow is led by Glasgow City Council's education services, with the support of Bloomberg Philanthropies.
