Galway City Council Public Art Commission: Call for Submissions

First of all, please follow the Poetry Diva Collective on twitter. I'm new to this thing, not sure why anyone would want to know what I'm doing all day but I can see the uses as far as letting people know real time about events.

With a bit of imagination, this could be a wonderful arts opportunity

Galway City Council invites artists and arts practitioners of all disciplines to submit proposals for a public art commission to take place in the Carrowbrowne Halting Site, Headford Rd, Galway. The budget for the Carrowbrowne Public Art Commission is €15,000.

The practitioner is asked to respond to the context of the Carrowbrowne site and its community towards the development of a new public arts project that will be informed by the culture and lives of the Traveller Community.

Proposals for any medium of the arts including Drama/Music/Dance/Literature/Sculpture/

Visual Arts/Film/Performing arts are accepted, as are proposals for temporary and engaged projects as well as permanent installations.

Proposals from members of the traveller community professionally involved in the arts are welcome.

Deadline: 4.00pm Friday 25th September

Submissions to: Megs Morley, Public Arts Officer, Galway City Council, College Rd, Galway.
