Loup Women’s Group Commission

Deadline: May 2, 2014, 4:00 pm

Loup Women’s Group (LWG) seeks expressions of interest from experienced artists or design teams in developing a new public artwork. The total budget available for the artwork is up to £40,000, to design, produce and install an artwork in the public realm.

The Building Peace through the Arts – Re-Imaging Communities Programme themes are community cohesion, regeneration through the arts, positive relations at the local level, peace and reconciliation and connecting communities.

The project seeks to create a legacy artwork of which people from all different backgrounds take ownership and are proud. Loup Women’s Group wants to enhance their area, set an example and showcase what is possible in what has historically been a very divided area.

The chosen site for the project is on a busy staggered crossroads which joins the roads to Moneymore and Ballyronan, Magherafelt and Coagh, a location with a lot of daily traffic. The artwork will therefore be in a prime vantage point and will become an iconic landmark for the Loup and a symbol of shared space.
