To help celebrate our 10th Birthday, we would like to commission a number of pieces of street art to decorate the centre here in Burnham Deepdale.
So that everyone is working to the same timescale this is the plan:
30th June – Artists submit ideas and costings
31st July – Decision about which pieces we would like to commission
31st October – Install art pieces in their locations around Dalegate
Timings for installation can be discussed, as it may be that work will be
produced on site, or produced offsite and installed. Space to produce work may
be available depending on the needs.
TYPES OF WORK
Initial thoughts are that we are looking for pieces designed for the site,
rather than already produced pieces. However we don't know what is out there
and are very open to suggestions.
type of works are also open to submission. Sculpture, paintings, glass,
planting or any other medium or mixed medium would be considered.
only proviso is that we'd like the art to be on display 365 days a year, and so
must be capable of dealing with all weathers and be securely fixed to be safe
can happily arrange for you to visit Dalegate Market to have a look around and
discuss possible locations.
There are walls, roofs, walkways, steps, car parks, pop up shops, seating areas
and many other potential spaces.
this stage we are only considering areas within the Dalegate Market area, not
the campsite and hostels of Deepdale Farm. We’ll be considering sculpture for
those in the future, possibly late 2017.
Please send submissions either electronically to
or by post to:
