Street Art Commission, Festival of Hope Winsford

We would like to commission an artist to work with us to create a new street artwork in Winsford town centre.

The design of the piece will be created collaboratively with us, the commissioners, Winsford Young Producers, in partnership with Cheshire West and Chester Council. 

We want the piece to have a long-lasting legacy in Winsford and we want it to represent Winsford’s past, present and future and create a feeling of hope.

The artwork will cover the subway in Winsford which connects the town with the town centre. We wish to take a place that has previously been vandalised and create a space people can be proud of, creating a message of hope for Winsford and bringing people together positively.

WHO ARE WE?

We are Winsford Young Producers. We are a group of young people working on a “Festival of Hope” for Winsford which will reflect on our heritage, as well as creating a message of hope.

We would like to work collaboratively with the artist so that the commission accurately reflects our community. We will support through the gathering of materials from our community via social media.

TIMEFRAME

We wish to unveil the artwork on the weekend of the 29th & 30th of August with a celebration (dependent on government advice at the time).

BUDGET

The budget for this project is: £5,000-6000 (including expenses & dependent on experience).
