Manor Street Public Art Commission

Deadline: May 15, 2015, 4:00 pm

Manor Street/Cliftonville Community Group seeks expressions of interest from experienced and suitably qualified artists or design teams in developing a new public artwork. The total budget available for the artwork is up to £30,000 (inclusive of VAT)

The project seeks to develop a legacy artwork reflecting the Manor Street/Cliftonville Community Group and their involvement with the Building Peace through the Arts – Re-Imaging Communities Programme themes of community cohesion, regeneration through the arts, and positive relations at the local level, peace and reconciliation, connecting communities.

The Cliftonville Community Centre is located on the interface between Lower. Cliftonville and Lower Oldpark, at 60-64 Manor Street, North Belfast, on an interface site, directly beside a peace line, which separates the, predominantly Catholic, Manor Street community from its neighbouring Protestant community.

The aim of this project is to provide a piece of public art in this community and take positive steps towards ensuring that people from the local area can feel proud of the environment in which they live, and encourage others to visit and spend time in the area, free from sectarianism and division.

The preferred location for the public art is the small garden at the back of the community centre.
