Shetland Arts is partnering with Shetland Islands Council to support the delivery of a public art strategy for the old Anderson High School site in Lerwick, as part of the Knab redevelopment plan.

We are seeking to commission a Creative Strategic Framework that identifies and contextualises the opportunities for creative/artistic intervention across the whole site. This framework will feed into the consultation and planning process for the commissioning of artwork on the site, proposing long and short-term ambitions for development and how and where they might be located. It will consider civic design, sustainability and infrastructure including lighting, wayfinding etc. alongside a programme of contemporary public art.

For further information on this commission and application details please read the full brief below:

Closing date for applications is 5pm 27 May 2022. Online interviews will be held on 31 May 2022. For queries or further information please contact Jane Matthews, Creative Project Manager
