Working with artists: resource hub

All University staff who are considering working with artists are required to contact us by emailing to register the proposal. The public art team will be happy to discuss your commission and signpost to appropriate resources and support.

The University’s Public Art Commissioning Guidance Document (PDF 193kB) is available to University of Bristol staff, to support the early stages of planning a commission.

This resource hub is in development. It will offer access to tools and templates to support the process of creating new art commissions.
