Lead Aritist commission

Deadline: January 7, 2009, 5:00 pm

Eastleigh Borough Council are looking to appoint a dynamic, forward thinking lead artist to produce a public art vision for Dowd’s Farm park, Hedge End.  With a view of making Dowd’s Farm Park a unique, imaginative and exciting place where both adults and children want to spend time.

The project has been established as a partnership led by Eastleigh Borough Council.  Members on the steering group include representatives from Hedge End Town Council, Wellstead Primary School, Local Councillors, residents from the Dowd’s Farm development and Swathing Housing Association.  Funding for public art was secured at the outset through developers’ contributions.  It is required that the local community will be involved in selected parts of the public art process to increase a sense of ownership and enjoyment of the finished works. 

To apply, please submit your expression of interest in written form, including;

  • A short statement about your interest in the project and how your experience is relevant
  • Your CV, 8 images (max): CD, DVDs, catalogues/reviews
  • A s.a.e for return of items

Please send or email this information to the following address:

Joanne Moody, Public Arts Officer, Eastleigh Borough Council, Civic Offices, Leigh Rd, Eastleigh, SO50 9YN or [email protected]
