Open call for Experienced Outdoor/Mural Artist

Share

Eligibility:

Manchester College is inviting expressions of interest from artists with previous experience of painting outdoor work / mural works; who would like to be considered for creating work on a their East Campus.

THE BRIEF

2020/21 has been a unique and difficult year for many, and for our students and colleagues it has been a time of worry, uncertainty and change.

Throughout this time, our students and staff have exemplified the resilience, positivity and aspiration that is at the heart of The Manchester College and UCEN Manchester.

The purpose of the mural is to create a ‘visual time capsule’ that encapsulates the feelings, fears and hopes for the future of our students and colleagues throughout the pandemic.

Although the mural will be a visual representation of the challenges of the pandemic, the predominant theme will be that of hope, opportunity and aspiration.

The mural will represent a forward look to a more positive future and showcase the opportunity and aspiration that being part of the TMC and UCEN Manchester community brings.

We are looking for a final artwork that:

-  Reflects themes of positivity and are uplifting for future students

-  Reflects the theme without a literal or figurative depiction of Covid and Lockdown

-  That are sympathetic to the surroundings and the maturity of students who attend the college

THE SITE

The campus is sited in Open Shaw, East Manchester.
The wall is on the main campus building and is a white rendered rectangular space of approximately 6.5 metres wide and 1 meters tall. Access by scaffold or scissor lift can be discussed with the projects managers. (See Images)
