‘WIN­DOWS on the World’ is a new com­pe­ti­tion be­ing launched by The Rock­field Cen­tre.

Al­ready the grounds and huts are be­ing used for var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties and work is con­tin­u­ing on the main build­ing to bring it back to life af­ter seven years ly­ing dor­mant.

While the main build­ing is be­ing ren­o­vated, Oban Com­mu­ni­ties Trust (OCT) wants to en­hance the boarded-up win­dows by the cre­ation of win­dow mu­rals which will il­lus­trate the pur­pose of The Rock­field Cen­tre.

Val Hamil­ton, for­mer head of Art at Oban High School, is co- or­di­nat­ing the pro­ject.

She said: ‘ We want to trans­form the six tall win­dows at the front of the build­ing by in­stalling painted pan­els over these win­dows. This will not only brighten up the look of the build­ing, but out­line the fu­ture of the Rock­field Cen­tre through art cre­ation.

‘De­signs should clearly in­form the viewer of the pur­pose and ethos of the cen­tre. Back­ground in­for­ma­tion and how to take part in this ex­cit­ing com­pe­ti­tion can be found at www.oban­com­mu­ni­tiestrust.org.uk/news’

Eleanor MacKin­non, OCT pro­ject man­ager added: ‘ Win­dows on the World’ gives a great op­por­tu­nity for fur­ther cre­ative in­volve­ment from the com­mu­nity and for artists to show­case their tal­ent. We are all look­ing for­ward to see­ing ideas come to life.’
