Percentage for Art Commission – Expressions of Interest
Carlow Educate Together National School are inviting expressions of interest for a work of art under the Percentage for Art Scheme at our new premises in Carlow Town:
“The work of art should create an interactive, durable outdoor learning environment, which can be used by children in the school and represents the ethos of the school. We are interested in concepts that are site responsive, innovative and creative with educational benefits.
The proposed budget, which includes all costs, is in the region of €30,000 and we welcome expressions of interest in the following format:
• A detailed CV including your personal details, i.e. name, phone, email, web site, company (if applicable), etc. and examples of projects / work you have carried out previously.
• A brief summary of how you might approach this art project. Please do not submit a full proposal – a short paragraph will be sufficient.
The closing date for receiving expressions of interest is Monday, 4th November 2013 and a shortlist will be chosen within 3 weeks. A full brief including site plans will be provided to the shortlisted artists, who will then be invited to submit their detailed proposals to the school.
Please email all expressions of interest to simon@
