Art commission for Paediatric Day Unit at Addenbrookes Hospital

Illustrators, artists and designers invited to apply

Addenbrooke's Arts is seeking expressions of interest from illustrators, artists and designers for a new commission for the hospital's Paediatric Day Unit, as part of a major refurbishment of the Unit.

The aim of the commission is:

  • to provide contemporary and co-ordinated artwork to use throughout the Unit
  • to create work which can be used on wall vinyls and window treatments along with the potential to be used in other fun and surprising parts of the Unit (eg ceiling tiles, lights, seating, toilet facilities, etc)

The artist will be encouraged to engage with children and their families on the Unit as well as staff in order to gain an understanding of the sorts of imagery which will be most appropriate. Artists will be expected to develop approximately seven distinct but co-ordinated images - one for each of the consulting rooms in the Unit. 

Expressions of interest are invited for this commission (deadline 7 September). Full details of the brief can be found here:
