We're encouraging professional, emerging, student and graduate creatives to apply for the chance to create work which will be showcased across Medway.

We're looking to commission creatives, or creative companies, to produce a range of temporary public works which reinforce essential coronavirus safety and wellbeing messages such as encouraging residents to continue social distancing, wear face coverings and reduce the spread of the virus.

The works will be shown across Medway’s five town centres in Strood, Chatham, Rochester, Gillingham and Rainham and in other shopping areas in Medway. 

Showcasing creative talent 

Cllr Howard Doe, Medway Council’s Portfolio Holder for Community Services, said: “This is a great opportunity for creatives to showcase their talents and we would be pleased to hear from creatives who live, study or work in Medway. We are looking for contemporary designs which fit in with our high streets and the characters of each area. The public art commission supports Medway’s aspirations to become UK City of Culture 2025 which would create a legacy of opportunities for local people and bring significant economic benefits to the area.”

The deadline for proposals is 10am on Friday, 4 December.
