Open Call: ScrapAntics Festival of Light Art Packs

Help communities light up the dark this winter, with ScrapAntics’ Festival of Light art pack open call.

ScrapAntics are inviting artists and makers to submit an idea for sustainable art packs that can be shared with local communities. These packs will be distributed to families in Dundee to help create a celebratory city-wide community gallery in the windows of people’s homes this winter.

Ideas for packs must be based on recycled resources that can bring colour and creativity to people’s windows. Selected artists will receive a fee of £200 to design the pack and accompanying instructions, and to produce 100 packs that will be shared with communities.

Four artists will be selected to create the art packs, and there will also be opportunities to support creative workshops with communities. Artists should budget up to £3.50 per pack for materials, and they’ll receive support from ScrapAntics for compiling the physical packs.
