A STIRLING project to transform empty shop windows into vibrant works of art has been given a revival with the help of Clacks artists.

Go Forth Stirling BID's Street Stories project, which launched last April and featured a range of animated artworks on eight shop windows in a move aimed at revitalising the city centre, has been supported by Alloa painter Michael Corr and Menstrie artist Lou Carberry.

Since then, a number of the vacant shops have been occupied and the artworks have moved to other locations where they brighten and cover up unsightly derelict premises like the former TUI shop.

Michael Corr's colourful mural of national poet Robert Burns had pride of place at The Works on Port Street and now improves the look of the dilapidated TUI holiday store in Murray Place.

Danielle McRorie-Smith, Go Forth Stirling project director, said: “Street Stories achieved its aim of bringing the streets of Stirling to life as our shops and hospitality premises welcomed customers back last year following the Covid restrictions.

“We’re especially proud of this project which makes the city centre more visually appealing by featuring bright and vibrant windows rather than empty and uninspiring shopfronts.

“It also gives points of interest through the hidden stories behind each artwork.

“Some of the previously empty shops which featured Street Stories have now been taken over by new businesses which meant we could move the artworks around the city to new locations after resizing and reformatting them to fit.

“They continue to give visitors and shoppers something interesting to look at as they move around the city and we hope people are still enjoying the artworks.”
