Doneyloop Public Art Commission

Deadline: December 5, 2014, 9:00 am

Doneyloop Youth Club has been successful in its application to take part in the Building Peace through the Arts Programme. It is now calling for expressions of interest for a new public artwork, from experienced and suitably qualified artist(s), or design team.  The total budget available for the artwork is £40,000/€51,000 (including VAT).

The projects Steering Group invite Expression Of Interest applications from artists/design teams, from which a suitably selected and qualified panel (Project Steering Group) can shortlist artists to work up detailed design proposals. To date, a Facilitating Artist has been employed, to engage with the local community and prepare a report, which has resulted in the Artist’s Brief.

The Project Steering Group will shortlist a maximum of 3 artists/design teams, who will then be invited to work up detailed design proposals, for presentation, to the selection panel. Shortlisted artists/design teams will be notified by Thursday 11th December 2014. Design proposals, including models, if supplied, will be presented, by artists, in person, to the Steering Group, on Tuesday 13th January 2015.  The successful artist(s) / design team will be notified during the following week.

The project will be based on close community engagement and involvement, during the design and production of the final piece of artwork. It is essential that the artwork would mean something to the local residents, instilling a sense of pride in the area. The piece of public art should reflect Doneyloop and Clady’s connection to each other and its people with the history and story behind the areas townland names.
