Strand 3 ‘Buildings and Public Spaces’ presents opportunities for artists from across artistic disciplines, to work closely with the Fingal County Council Architects / Planning Department and the public/private sector at various stages throughout construction of new builds across the County. Artists may be engaged to commence work as part of a design team, or to make an artwork, in any art form, for when construction is completed.
Sites, places and budgets will be agreed with the Public Art Co-ordinator as they arise. Strand 3 will also provide opportunities for artists to be commissioned to work on major new developments in the County whereby the private developer is required to allocate an agreed percentage of the overall development and construction costs to the creation and production of new artwork(s) in the built environment.
