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.
