Shetland Arts is currently advertising four great opportunities for artists and creative practitioners in Shetland.
Created Space is an ongoing garden design project at Arheim, Quoys involving a partnership between Shetland Arts, Independent Living Project and Hjaltland Housing Association. The garden has been designed by Independent Living Project tenants working alongside two professional artists over the last year. It is in the final stages of completion and there are two commissions available for local artists, designers or makers. Please download commission briefs under Opportunities.
