Artist sought for War Memorial Public Art

Deadline: October 30, 2009

As part of the redevelopment of Telford Town Centre, we are seeking a lead artist to work on the development of a war memorial for Telford and Wrekin to be placed within Telford Town Park - a significant backdrop to the town centre Southwater development area.

It is the local authority's intention to mark the development of the Southwater area of the town centre and the regeneration of a cultural heart for the town centre, with the installation of a war memorial representative of all the people and communities of Telford & Wrekin.

This is an interesting project that will need to be developed with the artist over two main phases which will call for some creative thinking.

Phase one:
Within the confines of the start up budget to develop a suitable piece of work that will define the space to be occupied by the final memorial and will probably be the basis or foundation of the final piece.

The first phase will be used in the delivery of a celebration event dure to take place in May 2010.

Phase two:
To work with the council's urban architects and the arts and culture team to develop a design for Telford and Wrekin's war memorial within Telford's Town Park.

Rate of Pay:
£2000 fixed fee for pre Phase One work. Timescale will be discussed at interview.

The contract duration for the chosen lead artist to deliver Phase One and then Two will be determined with the arts development team upon appointment and marked in phases or milestones.
