What is percent for art?

  • The principal aim of the Per Cent for Art scheme is to provide funding (grant) for public art features in state funded major construction projects. It is a grant specifically to fund all the costs of the art project, including commissioning fees and all sundry expenses as well as the commission amount itself. To ensure the project runs smoothly a committee is formed. The Arts Committee should provide briefing documentation for the following:
  • Background/history/purpose of the building
  • A description of the architecture or the refurbishment works and a detailed description of the proposed scheme
  • Scaled drawings of the space
  • The commissioning body’s vision for the project and an indication of the range of creative possibilities. The educational value of the proposed art project should also be taken into account.
  • Total value of the commission
  • A timetable setting out building programme and date commission is to be completed.
