Pop Up Gallery Commission, Hope Streets Festival Winsford


We would like to commission an artist to create a pop-up gallery, ideally made from cardboard, or another recyclable material. 

We are looking to create a space that we can showcase all the amazing art that our town has made during lockdown. We will put a call out to the community to send and drop off their various creations to this “pop-up gallery”.

We want the gallery to record the creativity and community of Winsford, as well as gathering materials which will be accessioned into our Museum’s collection. This will help us record Winsford’s contemporary heritage, during this time of lockdown.

The design of the piece will be created collaboratively with us, the commissioners, Winsford Young Producers, and in partnership with Cheshire West and Chester Council.


We are Winsford Young Producers. We are a group of young people working on a “Festival of Hope” for Winsford which will reflect on our heritage, as well as creating a message of hope.

We would like to work collaboratively with the artist so that the commission accurately reflects and engage, our community.


We wish to open the gallery on the weekend of the 15th of August.


The budget for this project is: £2,500 (including expenses & dependent on experience).

The artist’s fee covers all work relating to the project, the artist will work on a self-employed basis.


Midday 9th July 2020

The first round of shortlisting will be open for two weeks.
