PROJECT TITLE: #SpringBankArt : Micro-creative Interventions

DATES: February-April

Since 2018, Artlink has been working with communities on and around Hull’s Spring Bank, one of the city’s most diverse high streets. This has developed into a series of participatory visual art projects called Spring Bank Art. Over time we’ve worked with local residents to develop the streetscape and celebrate the area and its communities.

For the final stage of the project, Artlink is looking for artists to deliver ‘street level’, small creative interventions to improve particular ‘grot’ spots of the area. The successful candidates will work directly with Spring Bank community selectors to brighten up these spots with small, durable artworks. The artwork is to be completed between February and April 2020 and it is expected to have a minimum of 3 years lifetime. We welcome visual art proposals from artists from diverse backgrounds, including disabled and emerging artists.

The requirements of the artwork/s are:

-They should be uplifting and beautiful in form and colour and should seek to represent and connect to the history and/or culture of Spring Bank, and its communities.

-The artwork should offer people a sense of joy, inquisitiveness or curiosity.

 –The resulting artwork must be accessible and understandable to a wide range of people. A large proportion of residents of Spring Bank area come from various backgrounds.

 –Significant consideration should be given to how the artwork fits into the context of the spaces of the area and it should extend out in some form over different areas.

 The artist will be managed by Artlink’s Producer, but also be expected to consult their ideas with one residents’ group of Spring Bank. The independent evaluators will also work with the artist.
