Opportunity: Artist commission for Craigie Pocket Place, Perth

12th January 2021

Could you create a piece of public art that helps people walking and cycling to find their way?

Sustrans, in partnership with Perth and Kinross Council, is looking for an ambitious artist who creates high-quality, innovative public artwork with community engagement at its core. Due to current physical distancing guidance, we are particularly interested in local artists who can travel safely and sustainably to Perth, or who can suggest a reasonable alternative method for researching and installing the project.

The team is looking for a site-specific piece of public art that helps people walking and cycling to find their way. The art should draw on the comments and ideas gathered through the Craigie Pocket Place public engagement process and help to point out important local places, as well as the National Cycle Network route. The artist should consider how the new artwork can be accessible ‘for everyone’, including blind and partially sighted people.

Notes of interest should be submitted by 31st January 2021.
