Launch: COP26 Hope Project
The UK recently hosted the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow.
Artist Steuart Padwick was commissioned to install three pieces of public art across Glasgow as COP26 legacy gift from over 50 companies, including Factory73.
With design partners STAND, we built a dynamic and interactive website that that showcases the sculpture, which will serve as a beacon of hope and positivity towards reaching global environmental milestones and a reminder that we, as a society do care about each other and our planet.
About the sculpture
The 23m high Hope Sculpture is situated in Clyde Gateway’s beautiful woodland park at Cuningar Loop. The 4.5m high Beacon of Hope is located at the city’s architecturally significant Glasgow Central Station and the 3.5m high Hope Triptych at the University of Strathclyde’s Rottenrow Gardens.
Leading Scottish writers, poets and local children have created Words of Hope that are engraved onto the pieces.
The team have collaborated with Mental Health Foundation Scotland to produce supportive mental health sign posting.
