Under the Per Cent for Art Scheme, the Mental Health Services Sligo/Leitrim wishes to commission art works in tandem with the construction of a new Acute Mental Health Unit (AMHU) for adults at Sligo Regional Hospital. Expressions of interest are invited from collaborative artists working in all art forms to create works of a temporal or permanent nature that are informed by and appropriate to this health context.
The commission addresses two distinct locations and artists are invited to respond to:
1. the planned new Inpatients Unit to be constructed at Sligo Regional Hospital and/or
2. the current acute Inpatients Unit located on Clarion Road

Deadline for Stage One Submissions: Friday 2 October 2015
