PAS is celebrating its 20th anniversary in March 2013. This milestone happens in the Year of Natural Scotland 2013. To mark these events, PAS is working with Creative Scotland, Forestry Commission Scotland, Central Scotland Green Network and Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation to deliver a national project which will pay homage to Patrick Geddes, the founding father of modern town planning: ‘By Leaves We Live’.
PAS has commissioned six artists to work as artist-in-residence in six locations throughout Scotland. The role of the artists is to collaborate with six groups of planners to create temporary public artworks which explore, examine, highlight and inspire debate around Scotland’s natural environment and the economic challenges and opportunities for the future that the planning system has to manage.
Planners are invited to participate in group projects of up to six participants. The project content and activities will be designed by the artists and a lead planner.
