Community Orchard Commission
The Whitchurch and Hengrove Community Orchard is a public art project by UK artist David Thorpe. The work is located in Hengrove, South Bristol and was commissioned as part of the Future Perfect public art programme. Bristol City Council is offering a commission through open call for an artist, artist group or consortium to develop a public project / event for summer 2017 which shall be presented in the public realm in Hengrove, South Bristol. They are looking for proposals that respond to the idea of an orchard in the broadest sense, not necessarily for the physical site of the orchard. They are interested in seeing proposals for temporary, event based or ephemeral works that will elicit a strong response from the public and draw people in. The commission budget is £4,000 made up of an artist fee of £1,500 and a production budget for the delivery of the commission/event of £2,500.
Expires: December 6, 2016
