We are delighted to be starting a new community project within Inverclyde, with two artists, Sam Macgregor and Duncan Wilson.
We will be collaborating with the community in The Strone area of Greenock (including Leven Road, Aberfoyle, Penny Fern, Maukinhall and Bow Road), to develop arts based engagement activities to determine the needs and aspirations of local people. The activities delivered will vary, as well as being determined by the community, and utilise a range of different types of art to initiate conversations about place among community members. This approach will enable local people to shape Community ArtWorks and deliver an Art Masterplan, that details the issues facing them, outlines creative ways of voicing those issues through art, and provides a starting point to develop wider regeneration initiatives in Greenock.
This project will be undertaken alongside Cloch Housing and Oak Tree Housing, and in association with Community Links Scotland.
