Halifax Regional Municipality
Request for Proposals: Public Art
Dartmouth Sportsplex

Deadline for Submission of Proposal: February 16, 2018
Project Budget: $200,000 CDN inclusive

The Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) is seeking qualified professional artists and artist-led collaborative groups to submit public art proposals for the Dartmouth Sportsplex Revitalization Project. This major facility enhancement is currently underway and scheduled for completion in September 2018.

Full details regarding the submission process are available here:
https://www.halifax.ca/recreation/arts-culture-heritage/opportunities-artists-halifax

The Facility
The Dartmouth Sportsplex (DSP) is owned by HRM and operated by the Dartmouth Sportsplex Community Association (DSCA). The DSP delivers recreation, health sport and community programming for residents. The facility was the first of its type to be constructed in HRM and opened its doors in 1982.

35 years after it was built, the current Revitalization Project has been undertaken as a means of offering more inclusive and accessible services to its users, and a broader compliment of programs and services to meet community need and demand. The redesign of the Sportsplex has been developed by Diamond Schmitt Architects and Abbot Brown Architects. Construction of the project is being managed by Marco Maritimes Ltd.

The Process
This is a 1-stage Request for Proposals process seeking preliminary concepts and an overall approach for the integration of public artwork at specified locations within the renovated Dartmouth Sportsplex facility. The artist(s) selected through this process will work in consultation with municipal staff and members of the project team to produce a detailed design for the final artwork.

The Budget
Artists are asked to submit proposals based on a total project budget of $200,000. This budget is inclusive of all material and production costs of the artwork, as well as all artist and professional fees.

The Deadline
The Request for Proposals closes Friday February 16th at 4:00pm local time (AST).
