NCSS INVITES SUBMISSIONS FOR ARTS PROJECTS FOR BREASTCHECK FACILITIES IN GALWAY & CORK

The NCSS invites submissions for one or more art projects for the new facilities at the BreastCheck Western Unit, Newcastle Road, Galway and the BreastCheck Southern Unit, Infirmary Road, Cork – 25 November 2009.

Under a Government decision in May 1997 budgets for construction of Capital Projects undertaken by relevant Public Bodies should include a percentage funding for art work feature or project.

The National Cancer Screening Service (NCSS) completed the construction of two BreastCheck Units in Cork and Galway in late 2007.

The NCSS invites submissions for one or more art projects associated with the new BreastCheck facilities located at the following addresses:

• BreastCheck Western Unit, Newcastle Road, Galway
• BreastCheck Southern Unit, Infirmary Road, Cork

The maximum budget for the design(s), supply and fix for this project will be €50,000 inclusive of all costs, expenses, VAT, insurance and other charges necessary for completion including installation. The NCSS will pay a fee of €500 to each of a maximum of four artists shortlisted to Stage 2.

The competition is open to a wide range of visual artwork. There is a flexible approach to the media and nature of the project and its location. It is envisaged that the applicant may look for inspiration in the social and cultural context of each location.

The deadline for applications is 5pm Friday 18 December 2009.
