Creative opportunity

We're looking for multiple artists to create a range of temporary public art pieces that will be installed across Medway. With these pieces, we are looking to reinforce the safety messages following the re-opening of our much-loved high streets.

This opportunity is open to professional, emerging, student or graduate artists. This will be a great opportunity to showcase your work in the local area.

We would love to hear from artists who live, study or work in Medway. We have not set strict criteria for these designs as we would like to encourage the artists to create freely. We would like contemporary designs that will fit in with the high streets and the characters of each area.

Background

On 15 June 2020, non-essential shops started to re-open across Medway. Pubs, restuarants and hairdressers and other high street staples began to re-open on 4 July.

We have been working hard with the business community of Medway to follow the latest government guidance to make sure the areas are as safe as possible for all.

Businesses have had to make sure that they have put social distancing measures in place and completed risk assessments to ensure the safety of everyone.
