London Transport Museum seeks local artist to celebrate East London Line arrival

From the team at the London Transport Museum:

We are developing an exhibition due to open in June 2010 focusing on the new extension of the London Overground network from Dalston to West Croydon. The exhibition explores the role transport plays in creating local identity and the impact of the new line on its neighbouring communities.

An exciting opportunity has arisen to work with a local community group in Lewisham to explore local identity and create a poster that will be displayed in the exhibition. We are looking for someone who is experienced in community consultation and can deliver a high quality graphic outcome.

The aim of the artwork is to generate continuing interest and public commitment to Transport for London’s vision of London as a world city, and specifically to promote the new London Overground line, with particular focus on the area surrounding the 6 new stations in Lewisham (New Cross, New Cross Gate, Brockley, Honor Oak Park, Forest Hill, Sydenham).

The artist is required, after consultation with project participants, to create a poster artwork. The artist will also work with project participants to develop their own artwork.

To request a copy of the full brief, please email Michelle Brown or Jane Findlay at the London Transport Museum.

That's really wierd. I was just working on some sketches today to come up with a poster design which would represented Brockley for this new east london line.

I had a weird coincidence too. I'd just come up with an arts idea to celebrate the opening of the ELL when the email arrived in my inbox yesterday.

I'm sure local taggers will happily provide some public art for free.

On the subject of public art, Artmongers are running a series of workshops at the Horniman starting on Tuesday in regards to a new commission by Sainsbury's Forest Hill. More here...

I contacted LTM this week for a brief but they said that the competition is already closed! It sounds like they were after a coordinator to do some workshops with the community and forest hill boys school.
