Inverness Castle transformation – Spirit:360

Spirit:360 is a commissioning programme for emerging and established creative professionals led by Highland Place Partnership and Creative Scotland Place Partnership.

This new programme is open to writers, musicians, filmmakers, visual artists, and others, the programme will support the creation of new work inspired by stories that reflect the theme of the "Spirit of the Highlands".

Spirit:360 is a partnership with the Highland Place Partnership and £150,000 has been made available through Creative Scotland Place Partnership funding to support the new commissioning programme.

Spirit:360 will support and promote artists, with the completed commissions being showcased on a new online platform alongside the original story which has inspired the work. It is anticipated that some of the works may inspire larger-scale commissions for consideration within the new visitor attraction in the transformed Inverness Castle when it opens to the public.

Spirit:360 is open to creative professionals based within, or originally from, The Highland Council area. Commissions are available up to a maximum of £1,000 and applications are encouraged from those practising professionally across all art forms, including textiles, visual art, crafts, jewellery, music, film, photography, dance, written word and theatre. Working with the creative and cultural sector in the Highlands, Spirit:360 will celebrate the creativity rooted within the communities of the area. It will also offer funding for the creative sector during this period of recovery from the impact of the pandemic while further developing the Spirit of the Highlands project.

Spirit:360 is supported by the Creative Scotland Place Partnership programme and is administered by High Life Highland, as part of the Spirit of the Highlands project. To find out more, contact spirit.360@highlifehighland.com
