Brief Description

Pembrokeshire County Council (PCC) invite submissions from experienced artists to design and deliver a dynamic and high quality mural on the side wall of Theatr Gwaun, Fishguard, Pembrokeshire as part of the Ancient Connections cross-border arts, heritage and tourism project linking North Wexford with North Pembrokeshire (Wales). The mural should tell a story, or several interlinked stories that encourage local people to feel more invested in their hometown and generate intrigue and a desire to know more in visitors. Alongside the main mural, smaller additional outdoor visual interventions are welcomed in the vicinity of Goodwick and the Ferry terminal that visually and conceptually link to the main mural and would encourage visitors to join the dots of the stories being told. The commission is valued at €13,500 (approx. £11,800 ) to include time and materials for community consultation, artist’s fees, mural materials, travel, accommodation and any other costs.
