Public Art Commission; London Road Regeneration Area

Deadline: August 18, 2014, 2:00 pm

Brighton & Hove City Council is offering a £70,000 art commission for the design and implementation of a public realm project(s), that will enhance the London Road Regeneration Area.

The commission is for a unique creative vision and a practical solution and the design concept should have a central theme that relates in some way to the specific location: its heritage, environment, ecology, current use and surrounding neighbourhood.

The artist or group of artists may chose to focus on one geographical area and one issue or to propose a series of interventions that addresses a number of concerns identified during planning and or public consultation - supporting documents available for download and review here.

The project should include an element of community engagement and there must also be a permanent physical legacy created by the project that has a life span of minimum 10 years.

This commission is part funded through Brighton & Hove city council’s Section 106 scheme for developers; in this instance the Section 106 fundscome from Knightsbridge Student Housing Ltd, developers of the Co-op siteon London Road. It is also part of ‘ReCreate’, which is part- funded by theEuropean INTERREG IV A France (Channel) England Cross-border Cooperation Programme October 2013 - June 2015.
