  • Brief Description

    The brief requests that you consider the following:

    • Consider a number of permanent artworks that mainly sit in the interior of the school but can travel to the exterior also of their new school building.
    • Focus on a concept that tells the story of the children, the teachers and what the school means to those who journey through it.
    • Artworks that will bring surprise and delight and bring a warmth to the building.
    • Consider engaging with all 92 students to develop and draw inspiration for the artworks.
    • Be aware that the new school building is being built at present so artists will be working from drawings and plans at Stage 2, should they be shortlisted.
    • Consider the artworks relevance to students and staff now but also in the future.

    The Commissioning Process:

    The selection process will take the form of a Two Stage Open Competition. It is open to all interested professional artists at any stage of their career or experience who are interested in working on a commission that requests interior and possibly exterior permanent elements and that will allow meaningful participation with their 92 students.

    Selection will be based on the information supplied by the artist to establish the competence of the artist(s) to carry out this commission.

    No designs or detailed proposals are required at Stage 1, the above information is to inform the applying artists of what will be expected should they be shortlisted to develop proposals.
