Torbay Council is transforming Victoria Parade overlooking Torquay harbour through a streetscape improvement programme including pedestrian prioritisation, road narrowing, upgrading of parking bays and new paving.
As part of the redevelopment Torbay Council with Ginkgo Projects wish to appoint an artist to undertake research, creative consultation and information gathering.
The project will draw out and re-present contributed ideas, views, stories, the heritage of the Harbour and people’s ambitions for the area, for later inclusion into future public realm commissions and design work. This commission will result in a text-based document informed by the research and events held.
The design brief is available to download by clicking here.
To apply, please send in a CV, examples of your work and a short proposal on how you would approach the project to Tom Littlewood at firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for applications is Wednesday 19th January 2011.
Work to be completed by end of February / early March 2011. Fee: £2500 + up to £1000 materials budget. It is expected to take the artist around 10 days to complete.
