Organizers: Artist Brief


Cootehill BPttA Steering Committee is now inviting expressions of interest from artists or groups of artists for a public artwork to be sited at Halton’s Recreational Area, Cootehill.

The theme for this artwork is ‘The Woven Fabric of our Community: People, Heritage and Diversity in Cootehill’ which reflects Cootehill’s unique history as an important linen centre and how this trade led to the rapid development of the town and attracted people from diverse backgrounds.

There is no payment to artists submitting the initial Expression of Interest (Stage 1). No more than 3 artists will be selected to proceed to Stage 2 and will be asked to develop a full proposal with sketches and a maquette. £500 is available for each artist selected for Stage 2.

Artists/Groups of Artists interested in submitting an Expression of Interest should read the Artist Brief carefully and follow the guidelines for submission.
