Brief Description

Four artists will be commissioned to create their own works, inspired by the theme of ‘Place’ and through engagement with local communities, to fill the passenger-facing end walls of our new trains. Finished works are to be provided for vinyl reproduction no later than Monday, 27 June 2022.

This commission would suit artists with two years or more professional experience and is an opportunity to develop your practice through a high-profile public art project. We welcome artists working in a broad range of mediums and from diverse backgrounds.

A fee of £2,800 for each of four commissions will be payable. This includes a minimum of one day required for community engagement. We will meet agreed costs for material, reproduction of works for display and reasonable expenses. We welcome collective submissions but there is a set fee for each commission.
