Eden Project: Public Arts in Morecambe

Eden Project
Public Arts in Morecambe

Morecambe Bay is blessed with a community of artists and arts organisation’s. It joins the list of seaside towns – St Ives, Margate, Folkstone – regenerating through the agency of art.

Art helps to promote economically viable, healthy and sustainable communities. Studies have demonstrated that public art can improve general wellbeing, boost immune systems, reduce stress levels, improve community health and boost local economies. Eden Project North will invest in Morecambe’s thriving creative culture. We are seeking local, national and international practitioners to develop public art projects, over the next twelve months. Projects will be selected by an Art and Culture working group, comprised of local stakeholders, ensuring the outcome is community owned, mission led, future focused and operationally viable. By initiating this creative dialogue, we aim to inspire a sense of hope, opportunity and ownership.

Phase one funding is now open with up to £4,000 available per project with 2-5 grants available.
Applicants for phase one must submit proposals by Wednesday 26th June, 2019.
