Public Art Commission
Public Art Opportunity in Rochester, Kent
Countryside and Hyde are delighted to announce an open call opportunity for an artist to commission a new public realm artwork as part of our Rochester Riverside development in Kent. This creative commission will decorate areas of the new public plaza at our new development of up to 1,400 homes on the River Medway.
This is an exciting opportunity for individuals to showcase their talent and work closely with Countryside, Hyde, Medway Council and Homes England, supporting Medway’s 2025 City of Culture bid. We would like the appointed artist to develop unique and imaginative design ideas for vinyls or graphics that will be erected within the station underpass and above the entrances to the underpass. The budget for this project will be £30,000 (which includes artist’s fees, materials, fabrication and installation), and the deadline for submission is 17:00 on Monday 20th September 2021.
For more information, please see the full artist’s brief below. To submit your proposals please email: RochesterRiverside@secnewgate.co.uk
