Stirling Health and Care Village - ‘Art Walls’ commission and prints purchasing

NHS Forth Valley wants to commission an artist, printmaker or designer to design, produce and oversee an installation of a series of panels for 19 corridor ‘alcove’ spaces with their designated ‘art walls’. Also, to create a series of additional artworks for other internal spaces, and source and purchase craft items  for the new 116 room Bellfield Centre.  Moreover, to curate and purchase contemporary prints for both the Bellfield Centre and the GP and Minor Injuries Centre.

NHS Forth Valley and Stirling Council are working with JM Architects to create two new light and welcoming buildings with different functions.   The design of the Bellfield Centre will create a place which will be active, sociable and open to the outside world with its courtyards, library, social and ‘quiet’ spaces,  and community hub.

There are 19 designated ‘art walls’ and numerous other spaces across the three floors of the centre which could be selected as additional ‘art walls’.  As well as being beautiful and interesting, the ‘art walls’ will be used for wayfinding and to lend a familiarity to the corridors. NHS Forth Valley staff, who will be working in the Care Hub, have already come up with ideas and themes which could be developed further and incorporated into the designs.  As some art wall form alcoves are large enough to house objects, craft pieces can be commissioned or purchased from Scottish makers.  

Contemporary prints need to sourced and purchased for both the GP and Minor Injuries Centre and Bellfield Centre.  Health and Care Village staff will be involved in the print selection process in ways to be determined once the ‘art walls’ project is underway.

The Commission budget is £70,000 inclusive of artist’s fee.

The contract will run from June – December 2018

The interviews will be held on Monday 14 May.

The deadline for applications is 30 April at 9.30 am

Stirling Health and Care Village - sculpture commission

Stirling Health and Care Village comprises three healthcare buildings: the long established Stirling Community Hospital and the new Bellfield and GP and Minor Injuries Centres which will open in October 2018.  NHS Forth Valley wants to commission a visual artist or maker to create ‘circlets’ of small inter-related sculptures, some of which will be permanent and some temporary, for five courtyards in the new Bellfield Centre.  Also, to create a series of semi-permanent sculptures (to last for 5-7 years) for public sites on the Health and Care Village’s perimeter.

 There are five courtyards in which people will be able to enjoy the fresh air and relax on their own or with friends and visitors. We want to bring humour and interactivity to the courtyards with ‘circlets’  of small artworks placed around each courtyard , some of which will be permanent and others temporary.  The temporary pieces will be replaced every few years by new works which can involve people in their genesis, design and production.

Three semi-permanent pieces are required for new public spaces adjacent to the Village’s three buildings:  Stirling Community Hospital, the GP and Minor Injuries Unit and the Bellfield Centre.  They will be visible and accessible from the street and of a larger scale than the courtyard pieces.  These works can relate to each other or be completely separate from each other depending on the artist’s response to the sites and will be replaced after 5-7 years.

For the brief please contact Robin Anderson - info@artlinkcentral.org  or 01786 450971.

The Commission budget is £60,000 inclusive of artist’s fee.

The contract will run from May - December 2018.

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 15 May.
