Munro House in Leeds, England, are commissioning a rather exciting new public art project. They’re looking for applicants to create something on the exterior of this 1930s warehouse turned creative hub – the building gets great public exposure (being on all of the main transport links) so whatever goes on there will be seen by a lot of people.
“We want you to create something that grabs passersby, car drivers and train passengers by the short and curlies, generates some chat, enlivens the surroundings and makes the residents proud. We want to put Munro House on the map and we believe the talent is out there to do it.”
There’s an initial budget of £10k and the deadline for responses is 3rd March, so get your skates on if you fancy entering. There are no restrictions (geographical or otherwise) on who can enter. I’m on the judging panel representing FFF and am pretty darn excited to see what people put forward.
Interested applicants are invited to come and check out the venue on Weds 15th Feb to discover more about the venue and its residents.
More details and RSVP info can be seen on the Culture Vulture website.
