Paisley 2021 UK City of Culture Bid

This was a Major Partnership Project of Renfrewshire Council. Steven Thomson, Creative Producer of Outspoken Arts Scotland was seconded to the core bid team from April 2016-May2018.

ABOUT THE BID

As Scotland’s only bidding place, Paisley rediscovered its sense of pride and transformed its reputation in the process of bidding to be UK City of Culture 2021. The competition was run by the UK Govt’s Dept. of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). It resulted in a higher profile for Paisley with unprecedented levels of coverage across Scotland, UK and the world. Paisley people, affectionately known as the Buddies, gained a new belief in their town again and confidence has brought many more visitors to Paisley.

Despite losing out to Coventry, the journey to regenerate Renfrewshire through culture and heritage continues. Paisley’s bid was only ever one part of a bigger plan to change the town’s future. Major infrastructure investment will revitalise the economy and the town centre over the next decade, as a direct result of bidding process.

Paisley Youth Arts Festival: Design Competition

PAISLEY YOUTH ARTS FESTIVAL NEEDS YOU!

DESIGN COMPETITION LAUNCHED TO CREATE IDENTITY FOR THE EVENT

A design competition has been launched to create the visual style for the inaugural Paisley Youth Arts Festival (PYAF) 2019 which will take place in Paisley town centre, from 1-15th September 2019.

Targeted at young people from the age of 5 – 25, the festival will feature exciting events including: fringe theatre shows; music gigs and open mic nights; a gaming and film zone; workshops on music; art; gaming; a food offering and much more! The full programme will be launched in August 2019. 

Following on from last month’s Youth Consultation event at The Wynd, festival organisers are reaching out to young people in the local community to enter the competition.  The young designer’s artwork will be used throughout the festival and will be included in posters; brochures and merchandise. The brief is to come up with a catchy name for the festival; design of a festival logo and an A3 or A4 poster, which should be colourful and eye-catching.

Local arts organisations involved in the festival include:  Brick Lane Studios; Create Paisley; Erskine Music and Media; Loud n Proud; Outspoken Arts Scotland; PACE; Renfrewshire Leisure and University of West of Scotland (UWS).

Steven Thomson, Creative Director, Outspoken Arts Scotland, commented: “This is a great opportunity for a young designer, under the age of 25, to create the visual style for the festival they would want to see and visit. We want those who enter to take inspiration from what’s going to be in the programme and put their own creative spin on it.”

The winner will see their work on the front cover of festival brochures and posters and will receive £100 and a free festival pass, six runners up will receive a free festival pass

Deadline is 5pm on Wednesday 1st May 2019.  Submit your entries via email to: contact@outspokenarts.org or by post to:  Design Competition, Paisley Youth Arts Festival, c/o Outspoken Arts Scotland, Suite 33, Sir James Clark Building, Abbeymill Business Centre, Seedhill, Paisley, PA1 1TJ
