NE1 to commission Artist for Bigg Market mural
As part of the ongoing Bigg Market Regeneration Project, NE1 is working in partnership with Cathedral Square to offer an amazing commission opportunity to an artist or artist’s partnership for the production of a mural.
The chosen location for the mural is on the western elevation of the Cathedral Square building and can be viewed by following this link. The useable area is approximately 18mx3.5m.
The principal aim of the mural is simply to animate the street scene by bringing a colourful display of creative art to the city. We're encouraging as much creative freedom as possible!

Successful artists will be asked to provide a cost for their commission which should include all materials and labour and must not exceed £7,500
