Decorative Iron Gates Commission, The Amelia Scott Building

Supported by Arts Council England, Tunbridge Wells Borough Council and Kent County Council invite artists to submit ambitious and exciting proposals to create one or more of seven large-scale artworks in response to the launch of their major capital commissioning programme for The Amelia Scott Building.

Each artwork will become part of the fabric of the new and redeveloped buildings that comprise The Amelia Scott in Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent. Funded using generous grants from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England, The Amelia Scott will house a unified service which brings together cultural, educational and information services in one conserved and modernised set of buildings.

The Amelia Scott invites proposals for the design and fabrication of Decorative Iron Gates to enclose the new, external, ‘Curated Courtyard’ space in preparation for the buildings reopening due in spring 2022. This artwork is to draw its inspiration from the surrounding High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and in particular the part this natural landscape has played in the development of the iron industry within the United Kingdom.

 There is a total project budget of £35,000 to cover fee, production, construction, delivery and installation.
