We are looking for the artist to work with the community to create an interactive programme of artistic work that can be displayed/ projected on an ongoing basis on dedicated screens within the newly developed Dunstable Leisure Centre via a lightbox or projector.

Central Bedfordshire Council is keen for the artist to create work which has a strong digital element, perhaps consisting of digital art, visual art which can be exhibited digitally, or even a combination of both.
