Artist Commission - Skate Paint, The Atkinson


Commission Opportunity for Sefton’s Festival of Hope

We are looking for a visual artist based in the North West to create a large-scale, striking painting/mural for the Skate Park in North Park, Bootle.

Who are we?

We are Sefton’s team of Young Producers working on a ‘Festival of Hope’. We are organising an online and socially distanced IRL event made by and for young people, encompassing themes of hope and heritage in relation to Sefton. Empowerment is an important theme of our festival;we want young people’s ideas to be listened to and heard.

We are leading on a variety of projects aiming to encourage community participation and engage with young people in our local heritage organisation, The Atkinson, culminating in a socially distanced Takeover event on the 24th of October to the 7th of November.

We would like the successful artist to work collaboratively with Greg Hodge (the project’s lead producer), the local community of skate boarders and BMXers and Sefton Council’s ‘Green Sefton’ to create an exciting paint-based artwork that reflects our messages ofhope, heritage and empowerment.
