Job:  Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council is seeking to commission an artist to paint a new wall-based mural on the theme of “minimising alcohol harm” in Bridge St. subway. The subway is approximately 79 ft long and has a depth of 7.3 ft. The Council is also open to other types of artistic responses to the space. The artist will work with a group of no more than 15 young people. It is envisaged that there would be up to 20 one-day workshops at £200 per day (£4,000 in total), to include all stages of the project, through to the successful completion of project. They anticipate that the project will begin late September 2009 and would be complete by January 2010. To submit your expressions of interest, please email or post your C.V., three to five images of previous similar community arts projects you have been involved in, and an artists proposal, explaining how you would respond to the theme and deliver the workshops and the end artwork. You will need to demonstrate an awareness of appropriate health and safety considerations in your proposal, in relation to situating art in outdoor spaces, and working in the winter.
