Clare County Arts Office - Creation of an Artistic Panel

The Arts Office of Clare County Council is establishing a panel of artists who will be invited to apply for upcoming commissions which arise through the Department of the Environment and Local Government's Per Cent for Arts Scheme.

These commissions will relate to social housing, urban and village renewal schemes and other schemes which may arise within the local authorities by December 2003. It is not anticipated that any of these schemes will be in excess of €20,000. The panel will be valid until the end of December 2003.

The artistic panel is being drawn from over 300 artists who have declared an interest in being on the artistic panel. These comprise of:
- Artists who previously applied for commissions with Clare County Council
- Artists who responded to nationwide advertisements early in 2002

Applicants for the panel should have experience in creating their own work and / or in working with communities. Applications are welcome from all creative disciplines as forthcoming commissions may include commissions that are temporary, non site specific, community based etc. To apply for inclusion on the panel applicants should include:
- A current CV
- An artistic statement / statement of work practice
- A selection of slides (not more than 8)
- A selection of catalogues, publications etc. if available

N.B. All applicants must include a self addressed envelope for return of slides and supplementary material.
Please send applications to:

Closing date for receipt of application is: November 1st, 2002.

N.B. If applying for the N18 / N19 Public Art Commission please note that one current CV, one selection of slides (not more than 8), one selection of catalogues, publications etc. and one S.A.E. will suffice but an artistic statement / statement of work practice will still be required.
