Scott Skinner Antennae are looking to commission a public artist……
The Scott Skinner Antennae Project Steering Group (SSAPSG) wishes to appoint an experienced public artist to work in Banchory, Aberdeenshire, whose practice includes a strong element of community engagement. The artist will formulate initial designs and implementation plans for:
- A recognisable creative ‘brand’ identity for Banchory
- A rejuvenated town centre, focusing on Scott Skinner Square.
The purpose of this commission is to help promote and maintain the square as a vibrant civic space within the town enabling local people to make the most of it as their public space on a daily basis.
The vision is to develop Scott Skinner Square as ‘an attractive, adaptable and vibrant civic space that will act as a focal point for Banchory Town Centre and enable orientation to other areas of the town. It will have a unique local sense of identity, a warm, welcoming and inspiring atmosphere that encourages locals and visitors to spend time there’.
