Dublin City Council is developing an active travel route from Clontarf to the City Centre known as the Clontarf to City Centre Scheme or C2CC. The design and development of this infrastructure is led by the Environment and Transport Department in Dublin City Council with the National Transport Authority will be transformative for this part of the city.
As part of the scheme the National Transport Authority has provided funding under the Per Cent for Art Scheme for a public art commission. The theme of the commission is Active Travel. Active Travel is defined as ‘travelling with a purpose, using your own energy’. This theme is chosen to provoke ideas and thoughts relevant to the development of C2CC but it is also open enough to give ‘creative space for the artist’.
This invitation is open to artists or teams and the competition is being organised on an open call two stage basis. The commissioners will welcome proposals in any artform and form of practice which relate to C2CC and also to the theme of Active Travel.
The proposal must be for a new and original artwork and could include permanent work, temporary or time base art, such as performance based or digital, etc.
This brief is intentionally open and the commissioners wish to be surprised by the originality of ideas combined with feasibility of proposals. This commission is open to Irish and international artists. Up to four proposals will be short-listed for further development in Stage 2. Fees will be payable to short-listed artists for the further development of their initial proposals.
Closing date is Tuesday 19th of March at 12.00 noon.More Info
