Call to artists to submit public art design – make your mark!
Have you always dreamed of designing a piece of public art which will stand the test of time and be seen by generations to come? Here’s a fantastic opportunity for artists to design a piece of public art to be displayed permanently as part of a regeneration scheme in Enfield. Enfield Council wishes to commission a piece of public art to be the focal point of a newly-developed Gateway into Enfield, at Florence Hayes Recreation Ground. This area is a small parcel of green space amid a harsh, bleak landscape of high-density social housing within the deprived North London Suburb of Upper Edmonton.
It is now the subject of intense redevelopment in the aim to provide an area that is truly valued by the local community – in a way it was in previous generations. Phased development over the next year will see the creation of an adventure play area, a play centre with disabled facilities, a sensory garden and a community planting scheme.
Central to this design will be the creation of a piece of public art, which will sit on a central dais clearly visible from the Highway. Enfield Council invite you to register your interest in designing this focal point, which will be permanently displayed at the site and signify your arrival in Enfield.
The deadline for submitting an expression of interest is 4th September 2009. Should you experience difficulties accessing the pack, or have questions relating to the scheme, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
