The Hill Street Public Art Project 2012: Call for Artists

Deadline: January 16, 2012, 10:00 am

The Hill Street Public Art Project 2012: Call for Artists

In association with Newry and Mourne District Council, Sticky Fingers Early Years Arts is looking for four experienced artists of differing disciplines to collaborate with primary school children on an integrated public art scheme for Hill Street, Newry. Each artist will deliver a series of workshops in Newry to work with local children on creating a permanent art installation in one of four sites along Hill Street. In keeping with Sticky Fingers' programme ethos, the workshops will be child-centred, with the themes of the final work arising from the children's imagination. Each art installation will be finished to a high quality and should combine the children's work and that of the artist. It is envisaged that the workshop time spent with the children will be used as a research period for each artist to create their element of the final work, both elements working in tandem with one another.

Applicants will need to be available during February, March and April, have proven experience in producing mid to large-scale public art projects and have an interest in working creatively and collaboratively with young children.

The deadline for all applications is 10am on January 16th 2012. Late submissions will not be considered.

This project is kindly supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland Lottery Fund and Newry and Mourne District Council.
