Creative Scotland: Find out about Art + Design Opportunities at NSGH.

The commissions in the New South Glasgow Hospitals Therapeutic Design and Art Strategy are beginning to be advertised.  Ginkgo Projects, who I’m working for on this, together with Brookfield and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde are holding an event for artists and designers to find out more.

The event takes place from 5.30-7.30 on Tuesday 19 July at the Pearce Institute, Govan Road, Glasgow.

I’ll be describing the way that Donald Urquhart, Will Marshall and I developed the Strategy around the patient pathway and bringing the landscape into the building.  I will outline the projects, but I’m going to focus on skills and competencies – the ability to collaborate closely with architects & landscape architects; to work within the framework of interior design to challenge and develop exciting projects; to engage and persuade the wider team including commissioning managers, hospital staff, clinicians, amongst many others.

The projects have been developed so that they can be tackled from a wide range of practices from the strongly authorial through to the participatory and engaged.

I’ll flesh this out and explain more about the process on the 19th.
