Norfolk County Council is looking to commission five dynamic new artworks to form the Norfolk Way Art Trail, a brand new outdoor public art trail spanning 250 miles of Norfolk, England.
Design a multi-sensory, accessible public artwork that will engage local communities, reveal hidden stories and inspire visitors to explore the county between October – March. There are five sites to choose from, each with its own brief. All artworks must be installed by October 2022.
There is a budget of between £38,000-£58,000 +VAT available to create each artwork. This breaks down as follows:
- Artist’s fee of £15,000. This is your entire fee for the 12 months which includes any artist expenses.
- Community Engagement of £3000. Pay yourself or a local Norfolk Artist to deliver this, at a minimum of 10 days’ work.
- Fabrication budget: Applicants may apply for a fabrication budget of between £20,000 – £40,000. You must demonstrate that your artwork is good value for money. The organisers will not be able to offer a £40,000 fabrication budget to all five sites, so consider your budget carefully.
- Installation costs will be covered by Norfolk County Council who have allocated up to approximately £10,000 per site to cover the install and on-site construction work. This budget will be paid directly to the principal site contractor responsible for overseeing site management, health and safety, managing subcontractors, ensuring all work is built to specification and final handover. It will be contracted for separately.
The project has funds set aside to make reasonable accommodations for access support.
