Public Artwork Commission – Torquay Harbourside


Artizan Collective are seeking expressions of interest for a commissioned piece of public artwork to be installed on a hotel development close to the harbourside in Torquay. The commission will be displayed in a prominent location, welcoming visitors arriving to stay on the English Riviera whilst also holding an affectionate place in the hearts of residents and local audiences.

The brief seeks responses considerate of the heritage of the area, the iconic image of the English Riviera, and the cultural reference points for which Torbay is recognised. An initial budget is allocated to retain an artist who will participate in a community engagement and design process following which an invitation to produce the final commission may be made.

Eligibility: For applicants with relevant experience in delivering this scale of project, but in particular those who can demonstrate a connection to, understanding and appreciation of Torbay’s culture, heritage and communities.

What you get out of it: This is a collaborative opportunity and full support will be given to the successful applicant by Artizan Collective. This is a paid opportunity and a high profile public commission.

Deadline: 14 May 2021
