Eurovision Public Art Egg Trail Commission

We are teaming up with Culture Liverpool to provide a unique opportunity to commission 7 visual artists to work with schools and the Ukrainian community across the Liverpool City Region to design and decorate largescale painted eggs for inclusion in a public art trail.

There are 7 large-scale eggs in total, each measuring 1000mm high x 700mm diameter, 1 for each Liverpool City Region Local Authority and 1 for the Ukrainian Community in Liverpool. Each Local Authority area will decide which schools will be involved, this might be one school or a primary, secondary and Early Years/SEND school working together.

The commissioned artists will work with the chosen schools to design the decoration for a giant egg to be displayed in a public location within Liverpool ONE during the Easter Holidays and in the run-up to Eurovision. The designs should reflect the above themes, Ukrainian culture and traditions, those of the other competing Eurovision countries and our wider Liverpool City Region communities. The eggs can be decorated using paints, decoupage, and collage and must be varnished for outdoor display prior to being collected and returned to Liverpool ONE.

If you can demonstrate the following then we’d love to hear from you:

  • Have a proven track record of high-quality co-creation with schools and/or communities
  • Can work to the brief provided by Culture Liverpool and within the timescales
  • Have a history of delivering work to a tight deadline
  • Have a proven track record of developing and delivering high quality work suitable for the public realm
  • Have their own Public Liability Insurance of at least £5,000,000

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Sunday 12 February.
