Artist wanted for Poole regeneration project

Artist wanted for Poole regeneration project
Posted : December 14, 2017

Could you improve Poole in Dorset? We have an opportunity for an artist/urban designer/landscape architect. You’ll work as part of an engineering team on regeneration developments. We want to increase the quality of the resident and visitor experience. Our aim is to encourage repeat visits, which will help the local economy.

Dorset Coast Forum are looking for concept development and detailed design on two projects. These are at Shore Road Beach and Branksome Chine. Both projects recognise the importance of the artist, who will have a creative and innovative input. For this reason, we want to bring in an artist at the start. This will enable them to work as part of the cross-disciplinary team. Designs will need to be of exceptional quality and sensitive to the surrounding environment.

These projects are part of the wider Dorset Coastal Connections portfolio. This group of 18 projects is funded by the Coastal Community Fund and coordinated by the Dorset Coast Forum. The Arts Development Company is working collaboratively with Dorset Coast Forum and the individual project teams.
