Exciting Opportunity for Local Mural Artists

Weymouth Town Council, working in partnership with We Are Weymouth, would like to commission a group of artists to produce a 10-location street art trail in Weymouth. This will attract and inspire a wide range of residents and visitors to explore and enjoy outdoor artworks inspired by the history and culture of the town. The trail will enhance the visual aesthetics of the existing buildings adding colour and excitement to blank spaces and increasing the footfall and economic benefit for local businesses following the pandemic.

Ten potential wall spaces have been identified around the town to be used as canvases for new colourful and inspiring painted artworks which will breathe new life and interest into all the chosen areas. The project will deliver a refreshed sense of excitement similarly seen in the Glasgow and Glastonbury mural trail projects. The project is being led and managed by Weymouth Town Council who have commissioned The Dorset Arts Development Company as a consultant to help deliver the project.

Application deadline is 12pm on Thursday 16th September 2021.
