Manor Royal Business District (MRBD) are leading an exciting public arts and heritage trail project, which seeks to deliver a scheme to create place distinctiveness through exemplar art and design, and to increase the sense of connectivity between places and community.
The intention is to create a well-connected series of 8 micro-parks that will be educational, inspirational, and celebrate Manor Royal’s community and heritage.
Local artists are being encouraged to creatively engage and connect with the Manor Royal business and wider community to help interpret the story and history of Manor Royal, it’s people and businesses, to create a sense of local ownership and positive identity for the area that is complementary to the landscape.
The 8 micro-park planned locations are across the Manor Royal Business District, varying in size and shape and therefore attract different budgets which respond accordingly.
Although each site will be treated as an individual space, each will be designed and considered to be one part of the overall scheme, so will have continuity and congruence with each of the other locations and interventions.
Art work must be sustainable, robust and require low, or no maintenance and artists are able to apply for one or more of the sites.
Brief descriptions of each site and their respective budgets are listed at www.manorroyal.org/mystory. Interested and experienced artists are invited to return tenders to: firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm, Friday 20 March 2020
