The closing date for Expressions of Interest is Wednesday, 19 July, 2pm.
The Children’s Hospital Group (CHG) invites Expressions of Interest from experienced artists to enter into a phase of Research and Development between August and October 2017 leading to proposals for a range of ambitious artworks that will be integrated into the new children’s hospital public realm spaces and its Paediatric Outpatient and Urgent Care Centres. This Research and Development Phase will be a stand-alone contract and the realisation of resulting proposals will be contracted separately.
An information meeting for artists will take place in the F2 Centre, Dublin 8 on 3 July at 3pm.
Artists selected for this phase of Research and Development will be paid a fee of €3000 inclusive of all costs including any fees, transport, expenses, materials, insurance, services required and any VAT that falls due to cost.
At the end of this Research and Development Phase, artists are asked to submit proposal(s) for artwork(s) in line with one or more of the commissions listed in this document. Proposals should include concepts, drawings, materials, methodologies, timelines and detailed costs.
The selection panel will select proposals for realisation in the second phase of the Public Art Programme which will span 2018 and 2021. The Board of the Children’s Hospital Group has committed to funding this second phase primarily through Philanthropy and therefore the production of these artworks will be contracted when Philanthropy is secured.

1. A two-page current CV which clearly identifies the artist’s experience of making work as part of
