The Waterford Healing Arts Trust (WHAT), on behalf of the HSE (South-East) Capital Projects Team, invites artists to apply for a place on a new Public Art Panel leading to permanent art commissions under the Per Cent for Art Scheme within new health care developments in the south east area in 2014/2015.

There will be flexibility in approach to individual commissions determined by the nature and location of each project. Each commission will enable the artist to engage with the built environment of a health care context. This is an excellent opportunity for artists to have their work integrated into a health care environment for the benefit of patients, staff and visitors.

A short-listing process will apply. Artistic excellence and an appropriate fit between art practice and the health care environment are the main short-listing criteria. Commissioned artworks will have to comply with HSE infection control and health and safety guidelines.

Artists are asked to submit via email a one-page CV and up to eight high-quality images (min 200dpi jpegs) of previous relevant work. Max size of email should be no more than 20mb. All images must be captioned with title, medium, date, dimensions, context and further details if relevant (max 50 words per caption). E-mail submissions to

WHAT will only accept postal applications if the images are on a disc (no hardcopy images will be accepted). Send postal applications to WHAT, Waterford Regional Hospital, Dunmore Road, Waterford. Postal applications will not be returned.

Deadline date for the receipt of submissions: Monday, 2 December 2013 at 4pm
