Art for Places competition: Leeds and Liverpool Canal, South Sefton

Architects and artists’ proposals are sought for a moveable structure based around the Leeds and Liverpool Canal in South Sefton

The initiative is exploring how best to integrate public art into development areas within the NewHeartlands Housing Market Renewal programme, helping to create aspirational spaces that reflect the identity and life of a particular place or community.

The project, which is a partnership between New Heartlands, the Liverpool Biennial and the Arts Council along with local authorities and Housing Associations, will result in three public art commissions across Merseyside’s HMR areas, Liverpool, Sefton and Wirral.

In Sefton the aim is to use the project as a means of exploring the Leeds and Liverpool canal as a key asset for the regeneration of the local area. It is hoped the potential of the canal for both leisure and social use can be unlocked as it runs through the Housing Market Renewal areas of South Sefton.

The closing date for proposals is 9 April and entries from both small and large organisations are welcomed.
