Inverness City Arts River Connections Project Artist
The Highland Council are inviting tenders from competent and experienced Artists for the River Connections Project.
This River Connections project is part of SHIFT//SEÒL, a wider public art programme that seeks to explore the River Ness’ ecology and vibrant wildlife. The River Ness flows for seven miles from Loch Ness to the Moray Firth. It is an asset that contributes to the unique character of the city and is distinctive for the rich biodiversity along its length. The River Ness is one of the most significant features of the city and much of its biodiversity, history and cultural impact remain to be discovered.
The River Connections Project is one of a series of art initiatives to encourage people – locals & visitors – to experience and engage with the river as it flows through the city.
The SHIFT//SEÒL programme will lead to the creation of a series of permanent artworks of high quality and engender a distinctive sense of place, enhancing the riverscape and increasing footfall. The River Connections Project will involve working in close partnership with the Flood Team and will enhance The Highland Council’s River Ness Flood Alleviation Scheme.
The River Connections Project will seek to reflect the river’s significance historically, culturally and ecologically and enhance its continuing importance to city life in Inverness. This also includes the wider culture of the City of Inverness, Highlands and Scotland.
