Peddimore is a high-quality development that will be a best in class employment location for national and international manufacturing and logistics businesses.
Occupying a strategic position on the edge of Birmingham and close to key transport routes, it will be one of the Midlands’ most important economic assets and provide excellent employment opportunities for local people from all backgrounds.
Peddimore Permanent Public Art Commissions – Arts Trail
Deadline: 5pm, Monday 25th October 2021
On behalf of IM Properties, Active Arts are seeking artists to scope ideas for permanent pieces of art to be sited at Peddimore, the new manufacturing and logistics development site in Birmingham.
At this initial stage we are seeking artists to shortlist to develop ideas for a small fee. Dependent on success of that stage we will take forward some or all of the ideas to full commission and delivery.
The overall brief is to create artwork that helps reflect the purpose, opportunities and values of the Peddimore development. This includes its strong focus on environmental sustainability, community benefits and creating opportunities for training and employment for local people.
The Peddimore Public Art Strategy has a number of delivery strands including events and performance. This brief is for permanent or semi-permanent pieces of visual or digital art for an arts trail around the Peddimore Brook.
We are seeking proposals from artists at various stages of experience and can be local to Birmingham and further afield. We actively encourage applications from artists of diverse backgrounds with different skills, perspectives and stories.
If you would like to apply for any of these commission please read the full brief as below and send the information asked for.
