LEYSDOWN - Village Sign Artist Commission opportunity

Village Sign Commission by FrancisKnight on behalf of Swale Borough Council

Applications Close Friday 3 June 2011
Artist’s commission
Following a successful application to the Leader programme, a Village sign is being commissioned for Leysdown Village. The village sign forms part of an overall signage commission called ‘Can-do Signage’ which is a project featured in Leysdown Rose-tinted, a Vision for an ambitious approach for transformational change and economic uplift in Leysdown with arts as the driving force.
Currently Leysdown has no central village sign and the commissioned work is an opportunity to enliven the village centre and form part of the new signage that will be erected in the village.

The commissioned artist will work alongside the Can-do signage project, which will have a writer in residence.

The village sign should be robust and weather proofed in structure.
