Stage 1 Expressions of Interest
Expressions of Interest are sought from artists (or a team of collaborating artists) to deliver a piece of Public Art.

Please read Appendix A carefully and comply fully with the requirements.
The deadline for receipt of Expressions of Interest is 4pm on Friday 15 May 2015. The selection panel will consider submissions received by this deadline and select up to three artists to go forward to Stage 2 of this process.
Stage 2 Proposal
£500 will be made available to up to three artists/teams who will be invited to present their proposals to the selection panel. The proposal must include; sketch designs, visualisations and/or a maquette as well as an explanation of the concept for the artwork, how it relates to our theme and how the artist/artist team would approach its design, fabrication and installation. Details of maintenance requirements and lifespan expectations should also form part of the presentation.
The artist/artist team must demonstrate how the work can be implemented within the allocated budget and details of the anticipated duration of the project with timescale broken down into research, production and delivery. The selection panel aims to select one artist/team to undertake the commission.
The Manor Street/Cliftonville Community Group will be at the heart of this project and the selected artist/artist team must demonstrate how they will work with the community to develop a sense of ownership/pride in the piece and the environment and most importantly help create a shared space for all. Therefore the artist/artist team must also outline the approach they will take to engage and work with the local community and showcase the successful project.
