Imago Public Art Commissions, Wigan Council

Imago Public Art Commissions, Wigan Council

We are seeking to commission eight dynamic local artists to each create an inspiring piece of public art or performance. Each commission will attract a fee of £2000.00 to include time and materials.

This fantastic opportunity is funded by Arts Council England and Wigan Council to engage our local communities in the arts. We welcome submissions from established artists, emerging artists and collaborations from all disciplines including visual arts, digital arts, theatre, dance, spoken word etc.

One commissioned piece per month will be ‘displayed’, with the last piece marking the end of the project in 2018. We hope that these commissioned pieces will be a focal point amongst the people of Wigan and Leigh, engaging everyone to think about art, what art means to them and possibly inspire them be part of an art project in the future.
