Publication Date: 02/02/2022
Deadline Date:
Deadline Time:
Notice Type: Speculative Notice
Has Documents: No
Has ESPD: No
Abstract: Overview
Swansea Council will shortly be inviting applications from suitably qualified and experienced creative partnerships to assess the optimum methodology for creating a street arts infrastructure in Swansea; for example utilising gable ends, key junctions, dwell points and landmark buildings to create a ‘blueprint’ of usable sites for street artists and in some possible situations, graffiti writers, to present new urban artworks and gateway features for the city. The brief includes the need to commission the first series of artist commissions for this new infrastructure, within the budget available, but it is expected that the infrastructure will enable regular street arts commissions and stimulate an expansion to districts, and potentially an annual festival for the city and region, managed and steered by Swansea Council.
The anticipated time scales are
End March: Return of Tenders
End April: Commencement
September: New artworks on display
Selection process
The partnership will be selected on the basis of the quality/price and relevance of their past work experience to the brief and will be subject to a formal quotation and presentation exercise led by Swansea Council, in order to be a part of the quotation process please respond to this notice with the required information required below.
