Commissions: Portaloos and Young Persons Changing Facility
We have been delighted by the overwhelming response to this proposal. Please take a look at the winning submission for the brief below. This consists of drawings for the 9 Portaloos and A Young Persons Changing Facility.
At the end of September the Art in Action Unit will be hosting a face painting festival which will take place on Cramley Heath. This corresponds with the international face painters symposium Facing the Future which will be conducted in the Prometheus Theatre.

We are expecting a big crowd and we need proposals from artists which will help us to aestheticise our portaloos. At this stage we will require preliminary drawings which the Fabrication Department from the Art in Action Unit can then work up. There will be ten portaloos on site (four mens, five womens and a young persons changing facility) these will be situated on the south side of the heath (see diagram enclosed). We hope to produce a work which, whilst satisfying the physical needs of the community, also pushes the boundaries of contemporary art practice.
