Weymouth Esplanade Enhancement - Opportunity for Artist

Deadline: June 8, 2009

Weymouth and Portland are hosting the sailing events for the 2012 Games and in preparation several major projects are taking place in and around Weymouth and Portland to improve facilities for both residents and visitors alike.

The largest new project will be the enhancement of the Esplanade, the long sweeping seafront lined with mostly Georgian terraces. Regenerating the Esplanade will include new landscape works to redefine the Esplanade, the commissioning of a new Beach Rescue Centre building and a replacement for the current Tourist Information Centre, as well as new contemporary artist led festival lighting.

Weymouth and Portland Council now wish to appoint an artist to collaborate with the other design professionals and in particular with landscape architects currently in the process of being selected for the Esplanade.

To Apply:

Please include in your expression of interest: images of your previous work on CD as a powerpoint or pdf with an image list, a brief CV, and a letter outlining your interest in this project. (We will also require two references before making an appointment).

Send to: Celfwaith, 7 Pontfaen, Cardiff, CF23 7DU

Applications may also be accepted by email, however files larger than 8MB will need to be sent via a service such as www.yousendit.com. Applications may also be accepted online at this address. If you have any queries about how to apply please contact [email protected] for further information.
