Artist Opportunity: Create an Ambitious Mural for Theatr Gwaun

Three dotted speach bubbles with the words ancient connections inside, one in Irish, one in English and the third in Welsh

Pembrokeshire County Council (PCC) invite submissions from experienced artists to design and deliver a dynamic and high quality mural on the side wall of Theatr Gwaun, Fishguard, Pembrokeshire as part of the Ancient Connections cross-border arts, heritage and tourism project linking North Wexford with North Pembrokeshire. The mural should tell a story, or several interlinked stories that encourage local people to feel more invested in their hometown and generate intrigue and a desire to know more in visitors. Alongside the main mural, smaller additional outdoor visual interventions are welcomed in the vicinity of Goodwick and the Ferry terminal that visually and conceptually link to the main mural and would encourage visitors to join the dots of the stories being told. The commission is valued at €13,500 (approx. £11,800 ) to include time and materials for community consultation, artist’s fees, mural materials, travel, accommodation and any other costs. Planning consent will be managed by PCC. Key to the success of the project will be community ownership of the murals produced. The successful artist will be expected to carry out meaningful engagement before finalising designs.

Deadline: Thursday March 11th 5 pm.
