Gary Ibbotson 21 Jun 2021

Dublin City Council has announced that it is seeking to commission five large scale street artworks across the city.

“The Painting the Town project aims to improve and animate the general appearance of five sites, making them more welcoming, while also supporting street artists to make highly visible work in the City,” says the council.

“Artists are encouraged to be as creative as possible when considering their designs but might also take inspiration from the history of the site itself, the broader area, the built fabric or simply celebrate the city.

“The artwork design theme is open but should seek to engage all ages and abilities.

“Other suggested themes may include city living, reopening the city, environment or climate change, themes specific to the locations uses or history, playful city, Dublin City centre, urbanism, accessibility.”

Deadline for applications is Monday, July 5 at 12pm.
