It’s not too late to paint for #PositivePlumstead

 

Royal Greenwich is still looking for budding artists to design a beautiful mural to cover the spiral wall of Pettman Underpass in Plumstead. 

The design should represent the spirit of Plumstead; the community, its diversity and landmarks. It should also include the hashtag #PositivePlumstead. 

The winning artist will work with local residents to transfer the design. The total fee offered is £2000, which includes the artist’s fee, design, materials and installation. 

Councillor Denise Scott-McDonald, Cabinet Member for Culture, Creative Industries and Community Wellbeing said: 

“We want everyone to feel proud of where they live. Plumstead is going through a major transformation. A new £11.2 million library and leisure centre is coming along for the local community with improvements to the wider area around Plumstead Station. The Council is also working hard to improve the high street environment. This is a chance for residents to make a major contribution to the #PositivePlumstead campaign.”   

The artwork must be completed by Monday 28 August. The artist chosen must be available to supervise and install their design between Monday 7 and Sunday 27 August 2017. 

The official launch will take place within the first two weeks of September, the artist will attend with the local community and local press. The exact date is yet to be confirmed.

The closing date for submission is 31 July 2017, at 5pm.
