Open Call: Waltham Forest Council Making Places

Making Places is a new initiative by Waltham Forest Council, which aims to deliver twenty new site-specific artworks across the borough during 2018. These projects are being commissioned at sites within the borough which residents have identified as needing transformation – and these parks, street corners, forest schools, library gardens and other public spaces are looking for long-term artworks, design interventions, and other creative approaches that will help support the local community’s positive engagement with the landscape of the borough.

Architects, designers and creative practitioners of all backgrounds who have an interest in working in the public realm are invited to propose new ideas for Making Places. Successful projects will receive up to £40,000 per site to develop and deliver their projects on behalf of Waltham Forest Council.

Proposals will be considered from individuals, collectives, organisations and partnerships based in the UK – we ask that applicants demonstrate their prior experience delivering site-specific artworks, particularly outdoor or public-realm works. Applicants may submit proposals for multiple sites but a maximum of four sites will be awarded to any one individual, collective or organisation.

Applications for Making Places are now open, and the deadline for proposals is October 8 2017.
