Graffiti / Mural Artist Required

Posted on: 26th October 2015

Moville Family Resource Centre in partnership with The Playhouse Derry-Londonderry require a graffiti / mural artist to facilitate the Unwrapping Words project.

The Unwrapping Words project seeks to explore the literary heritage of some of the many writers connected to Inishowen and the North West. The project aims to make our literary heritage more accessible, and relevant to young people by bringing together the multi-media and creative strands of art, music and film.

Unwrapping Words will explore the diverse literary works of writers such as Joyce Cary, Frank McGuinness and Brian Friel who are writers of International standing and who are connected to the North West through their writing and / or their family connections.

During workshops, the selected graffiti / mural artist will work alongside young people, stakeholders and staff to design and produce a large-scale outdoor site-specific mural on private property. The final mural / graffiti will be produced by the young people with the support of the selected artist. The wall is approximately 50 metres long x 2.5 metres high.

The mural will take the shape of a triptych that will visually reference three themes, (1) Landscape and history of place (2) Literary and creative context (3) Maritime heritage

Artists are invited to apply by submitting;

• A cover letter (max 2 x A4 pages)which outlines your proposed vision for the project stating how you would collaborate with the young people and stakeholders, as well as outlining two similar projects, please include a maximum of 6 images.

• A CV (Maximum 2 pages)

• A budget which clearly outlines (1) Facilitation fee per hour (2) Estimated process and production schedule including expected amount of hours for facilitation and production (3) Material costs (4) Any other relevant costs.
