Call Out for Large Scale Mural Commission and Community Project, Sunderland Culture


The Project

As part of Nexus’ 40thanniversary celebrations, Sunderland Culture is working with the transport provider on an exciting project to commission an artist or artists to create a large-scale mural at Millfield Metro Station in Sunderland.  In addition, the artist would be required to lead a community project with local residents that connects with the mural creation.

We are looking for artists to propose subject matter for the mural that is unique and relevant and be able to demonstrate high quality in their work through examples of previous similar work.  Alongside this, we wish the artist to propose how they may engage local residents in an accompanying participatory project that relates to the mural and its creation in some way.  Experience of leading community participatory projects is essential.

The mural and accompanying participatory project should aim to capture the spirit of the Metro Community Takeover, reflecting the core aspirations (attached) with artists considering a celebration of community, connectivity and unity  


The Fee

The fee for the creation of the mural is £5,000.

An additional fee of £2,000 will be paid for leading the participatory project.

Materials to be included in the fees.

Delivery of Project by Friday 28th October 2022
