Expressions of interest for a new public artwork - Braiswick Academy, Essex

Deadline: March 3, 2014, 9:00 am

Essex County Council is calling for expressions of interest for a new public art commission as part of the refurbishment of Braiswick Primary School. This is an opportunity to produce innovative, site-specific public artwork, informed by the ethos of the school and in collaboration with Place Services, Essex County Council, Skanska and the landscape architects.

The aim of this project is to integrate visual arts into new classrooms or grounds of the new school thereby enhancing the environment and raising the aspiration of pupils, staff and others working in and visiting the school. The school is looking to develop the curriculum requirement to learn about the environment in particular aspects of sustainable development, recycling and reuse.

The artist will also work closely with Skanska to find methods that will encourage pupils attending the school to consider their built and natural environment in order to develop a setting for inclusive learning that will enable each generation of pupils to explore the environment, ecology and sustainable energy sources.
