Public Art Commission, Kirklees Council

Deadline: February 4, 2013, 10:00 am

Kirklees Council seeks an experienced artist to develop public arts design proposals for the entrance of Dewsbury Country Park. The park is a former landfill site which, with Forestry Commission funding, is being transformed into the largest new woodland in Yorkshire. This is a high profile environmental development project which is central to the regeneration of the area.

The aims of the project are to:

  • Develop high quality, feasible design proposals for the entrance of Dewsbury Country Park;
  • Sustain the good relationships already built with local people;
  • Extend public awareness of and involvement in the Country Park development.

To meet these aims the artist will:

  • Creatively engage local people in the development of design ideas;
  • Work closely with the Council’s Landscape Architect to develop design proposals based on research into feasibility and costs;
  • Work with the Landscape Architect to produce high quality visuals of the design ideas;
  • Widely share the design proposals and information about next steps with local communities.
