Commission opportunity worth 200k open to artists!
Following Enfield Council’s search for an artist to design at Florence Hayes Recreation Ground, another opportunity to secure a commission has arisen; this time the commission is worth £200,000. In order to welcome people into Enfield from the South West, the Redevelopment and Environmental Works Team at Enfield’s Highway Services have secured funding for an environmental improvement scheme that will be initiated to create a statement Gateway at Betstyle Circus. In order to achieve this, the Redevelopment and Environmental Works team are seeking to commission an artist or design consultancy group to create an innovative design that is of a high standard, both in concept and execution. Such a vision must be conveyed to the public thorough direct engagement with local people as they move about the area and nearby locations. This will ensure the final scheme creates recognition and distinction for the locality by enhancing, promoting and personalising the public space.
