Mural Artists Wanted

Ancient Connections has an exciting opportunity for someone to create a mural and their canvas is Theatr Gwaun in Fishguard.

Ruth Jones from Ancient Connections said: “The mural should tell a story or several interlinked stories that encourage local people to feel more invested in their home town and generate intrigue and a desire to know more in visitors.”

The main mural isn’t all that is planned. Smaller additional outdoor visual interventions are also welcomed in the vicinity of Goodwick and the ferry terminal that visually and conceptually link to the main mural and would encourage visitors to join the dots of the stories being told.

Ruth informs us that the commission is valued at €13,500 (approx £11,800) to include time and materials for community consultation, artist’s fees, mural materials, travel, accommodation and any other costs.

“Planning consent will be managed by the county council,” she tells us. “Key to the success of the project will be community ownership of the murals produced. The successful artist will be expected to carry out meaningful engagement before finalising designs.”

Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Want to know more ?
