Grace Park Educate Together National School : Percent for Art Commission

Grace Park Educate Together National School

Deadline: 12 noon, Wednesday 26th June, 2024

Grace Park Educate Together Public Art Working Group are seeking expressions of interest from artists whose practice focuses on permanent visual artwork(s) to be sited in the foyer of their school building in a visual medium. The school is open to the idea of the artworks travelling throughout the interior of the building also once this does not impact on the budget for an engagement process with all of their students.

Grace Park ETNS is a child-centred, co-educational, equality based and democratic primary school under the patronage of Educate Together. The school has 423 students, with 16 mainstream classes from Junior Infants to 6th Class and 2 Autism Classes. There are 25 teachers and 16 additional needs assistants (ANAs) working alongside the children in our school.

The school asks that artists who apply consider the following:

  • It is expected that artwork(s) will be interactive for the children in this age group: 5 – 12 years.
  • The Public Art Working Group are not interested in the Digital Art Medium for this commission.

The school is located at DCU All Hallows Campus, Grace Park Road, Drumcondra, Dublin 9

The selection process will take the form of a Two Stage Open Competition. The closing date for receipt of Stage 1 completed application form together with supporting documentation and material is 12 noon, Wednesday 26th June 2024. It is anticipated that the project would commence in Summer 2024 and be completed by June 2025.
