Title: Commissioned Artwork for the Wales Coast Path in New Quay
Published by: Natural Resources Wales
Publication Date: 27/02/2018
Deadline Date:
Deadline Time:
Notice Type: Speculative Notice
Has Documents: Yes
Has ESPD: No
Abstract: Introduction
Natural Resources Wales wishes to appoint an artist (or artists) to develop and implement an art project for the Wales Coast Path, at the half-way point of the path at New Quay in Ceredigion, as part of the Year of the Sea 2018. We are keen to appoint an artist who will research the locality and engage with residents and businesses in the area as a natural part of their design process. We are aiming to appoint by the end of March and to complete the project by the end of 2018.
Background
The Wales Coast Path offers unique opportunities to experience varied and often spectacular coastal landscapes - through wide tidal estuaries, beautiful sandy bays, isolated coves, and tiny villages. Following the path allows walkers to experience the wildlife, history and cultural heritage of Wales.
New Quay lies on the Ceredigion section of the Wales Coast Path, which is a 60 mile long section (also at the half-way point). New Quay is a popular seaside resort and can get extremely busy in the summer. As well as sandy beaches, there is a small harbour here built in 1834. Today one of the key attractions are the bottlenose dolphins in Cardigan Bay, which people can take boat trips to see. New Quay Honey Farm is nearby and is the largest bee farm in Wales. As well as tourism, fishing and fish processing are still key employment opportunities in the area.
Please see attached brief, which provides a full specification and instructions on how to express an interest.
