Public Art Commission in Chilton, Oxfordshire

Deadline: August 23, 2013, 12:00 pm

Vale of White Horse District Council are inviting competitive expressions of interest for the provision of Public Art; design and creation of a trail of works of art/installations at Chilton Fields development, Oxfordshire.

The Council are looking for experienced public art practitioners to explore ideas and propose designs around 2 or more concept designs based on two areas of opportunity. The first is an artistic trail or walkway through the public open space, and the second is an outdoor meeting space (such as an amphitheatre or bandstand) to encourage and extend the village's passion for music and community events. The Council hope to offer the village a choice between these concepts, so we would prefer artists to consider both (separately or together) when presenting their ideas.

This brief is for the research and design phase of the project, where the chosen artist will be expected to work closely with the local community. Fees for this proposal stage are negotiable between £1,500 and £3,000 (although the overall budget for the project totals £80,000).

The commission will be managed by Vale of White Horse District Council and overseen by the Chilton Fields art steering group (with representatives of the local community, artists, the developer and the planning department).

Deadline for Expressions of interest: 12 noon on 23rd August 2013.
