Opportunities in Arts in Health
Artist Commission Call Out for SBUHB Commemorative Project
Swansea Bay University Health Board is calling for applications from experienced artist/s to design and realise unique, external interventions on a number of hospital sites. Deadline Monday 17th January 2022.
These are to commemorate the extraordinary experience of staff and local communities during Covid 19, to honour and remember those who lost their lives, to recognise front line workers who put patients’ lives first, and to capture the social solidarity and support our community gave to us. The successful artists will respond creatively to the aspirations, recommendations and
themes arising from Finding Words, a recent consultation report. It recommended creating external spaces on three sites and a number of echoes elsewhere. Key comments include: ‘A place for quiet contemplation’, ‘A focus on growth and hope’ and an interest in engaging the senses, nature, seasonality. It is anticipated that the successful artist will include an element of creative consultation as an aspect of the commission and work strategically to meet the project aims across sites. The deadline for applications is date midday on Monday January 17th, 2022.
Applicationds will only be accepted through the eTender Wales system. If you do not have an eTender Wales account, the Health Board strongly advises that you register
as soon as possible. The link provided will take you to the front page of the eTender Wales website, which contains information on how to register. The website has a helpdesk which you should contact if you incur any issues.
Further information about the commission and award criteria will be set out in the full tender documentation, which will be available on eTender Wales on Tuesday 04th January 2022.
