Calling Artists/Makers

We're seeking submissions

for the design and creation of a

 contemporary

Kinetic Sculpture

for our re-imagined Sensory Garden

 

Chair of the Friends Group Pippa Smith, said:

 

“This is the first artist-led installation in the park and I am really excited to see what submissions we receive.  Brighton and Hove is bursting with creative talent and designing a kinetic sculpture for the park’s sensory garden, is a wonderful opportunity to showcase that talent. St Ann’s Well Gardens holds many events throughout the year to promote the arts and we are delighted to offer £5000 for the winning submission.

 

“The sensory garden layout and planting is designed to promote good mental health and wellbeing as well as providing a peaceful place for the more vulnerable members of our community.  A kinetic sculpture will add to the beauty of the space and enhance the enjoyment of folk walking through the park. We were keen to promote the use of sustainable materials and design, to underline our commitment to creating and preserving a green environment.”

 

The Friends of St Ann’s Well are looking for a landmark construction which will encourage visitors and appeal to the target audience of the sensory garden.   The sculpture must move without external power sources and any incidental sound should be in keeping with the space and be gentle and soothing.  

 

Closing date for submission of sketches/ideas

Tuesday 7th June 2022
