We want to create a portable structure which can adorn community buildings, library atriums and the entrance to school halls which will make familiar spaces new; a place for imaginations to thrive and artistic discoveries to be made.

The pop-up fascia is intended to transform young people’s usual, known environments, capturing attention and creating a buzz in the locality. It will also create a ‘brand’ of quality for families and young people, allowing them to feel comfortable to expand their artistic horizons, and to enter a new creative space. The structure should be quick to erect, adaptable for a range of spaces, durable and weather proof.

We welcome expressions of interest from visual artists as well as theatre designers and makers.

Deadline for expressions of interest: Monday 27th April 2015, 5pm.

The time frame for the commission is for the structure to be complete and usable by late July 2015.

There is a fee of £2,000, plus up to £6000 for materials and all building expenses.

To apply please email: harriet@fullhouse.org.uk with:

Your proposal.  Your CV and/or examples of previous relevant work.

Your proposal should include:

 An initial idea of what the structure might look like and how it would be constructed, including information about the materials that might be used.

 How your idea is relevant and appealing to children and family audiences and how it compliments Full House’s existing visual identity.

 A timeline for your realisation of the structure. (This can include working with other makers but please be specific about which elements of the process you would ‘out-source’.)

 We understand that all proposals will be indicative, and subject to change and development through the design process.

We are happy to receive proposals in a range of formats, e.g. video or audio files, or web-based applications, as long as the criteria above is covered in full.
