About the Project

The Hope Sculpture by Steuart Padwick is a public art installation across 3 locations in Glasgow and is a COP26 legacy gift from over 50 companies.
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.
