Proposals are invited for meaningful temporary art works and/or other projects to be situated in the public realm, (including web-based works) to address the complex and dynamic environment of Hackney Wick and Fish Island. The work is to be exhibited or launched at Hackney Wicked, July 2011.
The aim of the commissions is to test the capacity for "home grown" art and other creative practices to be part of the ongoing debate to shape the future of Hackney Wick and Fish Island.
The proposal must therefore address or respond to at least one of the statements regarding art practice, regeneration and Hackney Wick/Fish Island from the "We are artists how can we help" debate, these are illustrated and listed in the brief and appendix. You may proposal a work that opposes or supports a particular statement.
