The Public Art Programme is designed to support the commissioning of new art for public places throughout Northern Ireland. The Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s policy position is articulated in its Public Art Policy and it, along with practical guidance, advice on best practice and documentation on public art projects which have received support, is reproduced in the publication Public Art Handbook for Northern Ireland, ( click here to download ). In summary, the Arts Council embraces a wide range of media and art forms as Public Art – painting, sculpture, photography, installation, video and new media, temporary works, crafts and applied arts.
The Public Art Programme is open for applications for permanent single works; multiple linked works (eg a sculpture trail); and integrated art projects. Time-limited (or temporary) projects, although not ruled out, will not be prioritised under this programme; however, applications for such projects would be welcomed through the Awards for All programme
