WHO: Artists or artist groups. A high level of community interaction is expected from the artist and this will require engaging with local school children and older residents using social activity to bring them together to share and explore, the local stories and social history from the area over the past 60 years and also explore their aspirations for the next 60 years. The artist/s will use this activity to develop a community 'Event' and also as research and inspiration for the development of the design of the seating. This commission is inspired by the spirit of the Diamond Jubilee, rather than literally translating it.
WHAT: A Public Realm Improvement Project has been undertaken at the Local Centre in Wulfstan Way, Cambridge. An aim of the project was to not just improve the public realm but to also promote the use of the Local Centre. The proposals for the public realm improvements were developed in consultation with the local community and an aspiration emerged for the project to include artist designed seating. The principles for a public art commission as part of this wider project have now been developed and Cambridge City Council wishes to commission an artist or artist 'group' to develop and deliver an artwork to compliment the wider public realm works at the Wulfstan Way Local Centre. This commission is to design and deliver a bespoke artwork, which forms seating.
WHEN: All elements of the commission must be completed and the seating installed on site by the first week of August 2012. Deadline of 3pm, 27th February 2012 for Tenders.
PAYMENTS: The maximum budget for the artwork/s is £40,000.
Deadline: 27 February 2012 ** Deadline expired**
