POLLOKSHIELDS Communtiy Council has launched a call out for artists to take part in a mural project at Albert Cross after being awarded funding.

The group has launched 'A Creative Corner for Albert Cross', which will see artwork placed on the corner of Albert Drive and Kenmure Street after devastating fires tore through the buildings last year.

Pollokshields Community Council was recently awarded £9,460 from the Scottish Government’s Town Centre Fund to help create a mural.

Rob Cussons, treasurer of Pollokshields Community Council, said: "The underlying idea of doing the mural is to almost kickstart a regeneration of Pollokshields

"This is the first step on the journey. 

"Rather than looking at the damage, we want to people to look at a really colourful mural that represents the community."

Applications can be made by contacting james@jamesalcockfilms, with entry closing Friday, March 5. 

The artist will be chosen by the end of March and work on the mural will be completed before Septmeber.
