March 04, 2021

As part of the Imagine Colwyn Bay partnership programme, Bay of Town Colwyn Town Council are seeking to commission a bespoke art installation and sculpture trail to promote local pride and an interest in local history.

Imagine Colwyn Bay is a Heritage Fund Great Place scheme which seeks to harness interest in the town’s unique past to inspire and connect people, groups and businesses through innovative cultural activities, exhibitions and special events.

The aim of this exciting project is to contribute to the character of the area, providing thought provoking cultural landmarks or signposts which will encourage community and visitor engagement and interaction.

The commission aims to increase an awareness on the need to recycle, reduce and reuse resources and ultimately produce creative and inspiring opportunities for schools, education and the Bay of Colwyn community to work together.

Imagine are looking for local artists and creatives to propose ideas to make this a reality with a view to appointing people to work and manage the local project.

Key elements of this project are:

- The design, development and installation of sculpture /art trail made up of a minimum of 5 installations across the project area which is Colwyn Bay, Old Colwyn and Rhos-on-Sea
- Integration and use of recycled plastic and other materials
- A series of workshops in education and community settings focusing on concept, design and model making

The group welcomes interest from individuals, organisations and partnerships or collaborations that have experience of delivering similar projects. The deadline for submissions in midday on March 17, 2021.
