Artist Commission Opportunity

Members of Claremont Park Community Centre in Blackpool are seeking proposals from artists/organisations interested in creating a permanent site-specific sculpture or installation within the public space of the Community Centre.

Members of the group would like the artist to consider as many of the following objectives as possible: –
A sculpture or installation which:
– Incorporates interactivity such as light and sound
– Is able to support temporary installations on it or around (that may be created from time to time by the community centre members)
– Responds to the environment and local ecology
– Represents the local community and history of the surrounding area
– Uses reclaimed and/or recycled materials

The group would like to see as many of the following outcomes from the project as possible:
– A sculpture/installation which encourages the local community to engage with the arts
– Engages the community in their local environment
– People will learn creative skills through the process and will be able to contribute temporary work to the installation/structure
– Encourages a sense of ownership
– Develops a stronger sense of civic pride
