Central Park, Plymouth

Open call for Plymouth commissions

Central Park, Plymouth

Plymouth City Council and Plymouth College of Art are working together to develop a series of commissions of temporary public artworks that will be sited in Central Park, Plymouth, between April and October.

They are looking to commission a South West-based artist/artist group for a project that will take place during August. For a piece of work that  is live rather than an ‘object’ installed physically in the park.

The work could be a one off live intervention/performance/event/action or could build over a period of time. The project should have audience at its focus and consider how it will engage with the people who use the park.

The commission budget is £1,000. This budget must cover all artists’ costs (travel & accommodation as well as production/materials).

Send a proposal of no more then one A4 sheet that outlines your idea/project and a budget breakdown. Also include a short artist statement and CV, as well as four to six high-quality images that represent your idea and previous work well. Only accept digital submissions will be accepted.

Send them to jodie.bishop@plymouth.gov.uk by Friday, April 16 at 5pm
