Big Things on the Beach - Temporary Art Commission

Big Things on the Beach are looking to commission two stimulating, temporary artworks for Portobello, Edinburgh, Scotland, the second and third of three artworks to be commissioned this year.

These commissions are to be based on or around the seafront or promenade area of Portobello, a seaside town in the suburbs of Edinburgh City. Part of a long-term vision led by a community based trust and funded by the Scottish Arts Council and the City of Edinburgh Council, Big Things on the Beach ‘Imagine Porty Prom’ project will involve the community of Portobello in developing a long term art plan for the area.

A budget of £8,000 is available for Commission 2 and is open to artistic practitioners who work with light; events and performances will be considered. To be presented Feb/ March 2010.

£16,000 is available for Commission 3 and is open to artistic practitioners who work in any media; again events and performances will be considered. To be presented June/ July 2010.

Applications including examples of past work and any provisional ideas at this stage are welcome.
