Rhondda Cynon Taf CBC has recently commenced a £10.5mn programme of regeneration activity in Pontypridd town centre, which is located in the South East Wales Valleys. Regeneration activity in Pontypridd will transform public spaces through upgrading the public realm, ensure diversity and distinctiveness through the introduction of high quality materials and bespoke features, and strengthen the commercial core of town centres through investing in the townscape.
A diverse range of public artworks are proposed to complement and enhance the public realm, with the varied and large scale nature of the proposals resulting in the division of requirements into five lots, with a public artist anticipated to take responsibility for each lot. The Council is therefore looking to procure the services of a number of public artists: initially to prepare design concepts, before undertaking detailed designs, and then fabricating and installing pubic artworks.
