Aberdeen Fishing Memorial Commission

Website: http://www.aberdeencity.gov.uk/community_life_leisure/arts/culture/Aberdeen_Fishing_Memorial_Commission.asp

Aberdeen City Council is seeking to appoint an artist, craftsperson, maker or creative practitioner to develop a design for a new artwork which will commemorate the major contribution fishing has made to the city’s life and heritage, and the men and women who lived, worked and died in the industry. A working group has been established to ensure timely completion of the project by summer 2018. The artwork will be sited outside Aberdeen Maritime Museum in Shiprow, Aberdeen. The budget for the commission, which includes installation, is currently £55,000. The working group is looking for an artist with the ability to reflect, in either 2d or 3d, the major contribution the fishing industry has made to the city’s life and heritage. The working group is open to considering a variety of art forms, welcoming both traditional and contemporary approached to the subject matter.
