PWSH – Callout for City Centre Sites For Spring Artwork

PWSH is looking for long-term or permanent city centre sites to install artwork in spring 2022.

PWSH is a pilot street art project in Cardiff City Centre, that first came to life in August 2021 and was funded by FOR Cardiff. Over 10 days, armed with paintbrushes and posca pens, the PWSH artists and creatives breathed new life into corners of the city centre and made you smile with their vibrant ideas.

Heart-breakingly… PWSH lost three artworks due to a miscommunication with the cleansing team. They’re now on a mission to find safe spaces for the three artists Beth Blandford (Blandoodles), Temeka Davies (Noble Sol) and Amber Ford (Beanhead) who lost their work, to re-imagine their artworks in new and safe spaces. They’re looking for sites of all sorts of shapes and sizes for these pieces and for other artists to create new work for PWSH spring 2022.

PWSH was created to enable Cardiff born and Cardiff-based emerging and established visual artists to decorate their city centre with artwork that celebrates and represents a breadth of local creative talent and brings more vibrant art into public spaces.

PWSH are currently actively seeking further funding for the future of the project and are having exciting conversations with potential creative collaborators. Creatives and artists used this inaugural year to explore and celebrate Cardiff city centre coming back to life after the first lockdowns.

With accessibility, diversity, and inclusivity at the heart of the project and at the heart of each design, the plan is to grow this pilot project year on year.

Please get in touch if you own / lease a site / wall / building that you have permission to turn into a piece of art.

The closing date for expressions of interest to be involved in the next PWSH is Friday 4 February 2022. Contact Rachel pwshcardiff@gmail.com for more information.
