Open Call: External Decorative Brickwork, The Amelia Scott Building

Description

Supported by Arts Council England, Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and Kent County Council invite artists to submit ambitious and exciting proposals to create one or more of seven large-scale artworks in response to the launch of their major capital commissioning programme for The Amelia Scott Building.

Each artwork will become part of the fabric of the new and redeveloped buildings that comprise The Amelia Scott in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent. Funded using generous grants from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England, The Amelia Scott will house a unified service which brings together cultural, educational and information services in one conserved and modernised set of buildings.

The Amelia Scott invites proposals for a permanent Exterior Brick Artwork to be situated within the external ‘Curated Courtyard’ in preparation for the reopening of the building due in spring 2022. From kilns and peg tiles to the Pantiles and the terraced Victorian houses and streets throughout the borough, the clay of the local land has enabled the production of some of the finest brickwork in England. This commission will be inspired by bricks and tiles - these iconic, sometimes unique, and often overlooked items of the borough’s heritage and history.

There is a total project budget of £12,000 to cover fee, production, construction, delivery and installation.

Full information and details of how to apply can be found here

Expressions of interest for commissions must be registered via the Kent Business Portal by midday, Monday 18th January - before a proposal is submitted (by midday 25th January).
