Chatham Placemaking Commissions

Temporary Artists’ Commissions ‘Chatham Storyline’, Chatham, Kent

Commission timescale March  – August 2016

Medway Council is looking to commission a temporary programme of three community engagement projects looking at character and place.

Medway Council has been awarded £4 million of government funding to help regenerate Chatham and make it a better place for residents, workers and visitors. The funding will mark the start of an exciting new project, which will create an easier journey for pedestrians and cyclists from Chatham railway station to the waterfront bus station and town centre.

Creative public realm has been identified in the project where an artist’s contribution is integrated into placemaking.

Public Art Consultants FrancisKnight and Lead Artist Christopher Tipping have been appointed for the Chatham Placemaking project and will be overseeing the temporary programme through an overarching project called ‘Chatham Storyline’.

Chatham Storyline commissions:

Writer in residence – £8,000 (includes fees and expenses)

Print / Graphics – £5,000 (includes fees and expenses, with a separate budget for materials)

Film maker / observer – £6,000 (includes fees and expenses)

Artists can apply individually for each commission or as a collaboration/collective for all three commissions.

Eligibility

The process is open to professional artists who are UK residents and who are living or working in the South East and London.  Our South East Area covers Bedfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, East Sussex, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, Medway, Norfolk, Oxfordshire, Suffolk, Surrey and West Sussex.
