Budding artists and designers should get themselves down to the Morgan Quarter between September 28 and October 14 for an exciting new competition which asks people to design artwork which will be replicated on BT and Virgin media cabinets.
The aim of the artwork is to promote Enfys the new cycle network in Cardiff and designers are asked to incorporate cycling within their design.
Over the next five years, the Council will be investing in the new cycle network which will make it easier and quicker to cycle around the city.
Along the Enfys network there are a number of utility cabinets which BT and Virgin Media have given permission to be used as public art.
Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning, Highways, Traffic and Transportation, Cllr Ralph Cook, said, said “It’s very apt that we are asking for colourful designs along the appropriately titled cycle network Enfys or Rainbow.
“This is a great opportunity for the public to design public art, whilst also promoting cycling within the city.
“As a Council we are investing heavily into cycling in the city and through each step we have heavily involved the public, including the naming of the new cycle network. The public art competition is an extension of the relationship we have had with the public in creating the cycle network.
“I am looking forward to seeing what people come up with and would like to thank Virgin Media and BT for allowing us to utilise the cabinets in this way.”
People of all ages can enter the competition and the workshops at the Morgan Quarter provide the perfect opportunity for all the family to come along and take part.
The Designs should be bold, colourful and simple and should be on A4 or A3.
For those who are unable to come along to the workshops can still enter by sending in their design to Cardiff Council, Cycling Team , Room 301,Cardiff Bay, Cardiff,CF10 4UW
