Public Art Commission for outstanding primary school in Hove

Deadline: April 20, 2010, 5:00 pm

A £6,000 participatory Public Art Commission is being offered for a school project resulting in the design, production and installation of an artwork/s at Davigdor Infants School, Brighton & Hove.

The school is currently undergoing an expansion to accommodate the increased intake and the building works are expected to be complete by September 2010. In July 2008, OFSTED judged Davigdor as an ‘outstanding school’ and one where ‘the curriculum is made interesting and exciting for all pupils’.

Many parents generously share their considerable artistic, creative and other professional expertise and skills to enrich and extend curriculum experiences. Many of the staff also possess considerable artistic flair and expertise. As a result, the standards children achieve in art, design and other creative subjects are very high. Davigdor was also the first school in Brighton & Hove to achieve the nationally accredited ‘Inclusion Quality Mark’ – they are totally committed to inclusive education and have achieved both local and national recognition in this area.

The Commission
The commission calls for a visual arts based participatory project resulting in artworks to be installed within the school. Community, access and participation are at the heart of the school’s work and any project must promote these values. Artwork should take as a starting point the idea of community cohesion, and how the community can have an impact on the school environment and vice versa. We are open to any art form and are
excited by the possibilities.
