Calling for Artists!

Major new public art commission for Ferns and St Davids...

Pembrokeshire County Council and Wexford County Council wish to appoint an artist/s to create two new pieces of public art, one in Ferns and one in St Davids as part of Ancient Connections, with a total maximum budget of €175,000 to include all costs. The artworks must be linked either visually or conceptually and be made from sustainable materials. Cross-border collaborations are welcomed. The contract will be awarded in two stages. Stage 1 is an Open Call for Expressions of Interest. Applicants are invited to present an artistic approach to the brief, not a design proposal. From these submissions, a short list of five artists will be selected by a cross-border panel. These artists will be invited to make site visits, meet communities and develop designs and a costed proposal. A fee of €1,500 will be paid to these artists.
