Intro Text 

Under the Per Cent for Art Scheme, dlr County Council’s Arts Office in collaboration with dlr County Council Parks Department will commission new work through open call in line with dlr Public Art Policy 2018-2025.

Proposals are invited from artists or arts groups working in the medium of visual art, mural art, street or graffiti art, exterior wall painting, design, collaborative or community engaged practice; to consider the development of an outdoor temporary artistic intervention – painting the wall of the handball court in Rockfield park, Blackrock, Co. Dublin. This wall is the canvas upon which an artist is being invited to paint. The commissioned work will have a dual role – to bring colour and wonder to the park’s visitors and to bring a new experience of play for handball enthusiasts. 

It is an opportunity that is open to artists/arts groups who are working with exterior wall painting of some form as their primary medium and it also open to visual artists working in a gallery/exhibition context who may wish to collaborate with an appropriate technician to realise a temporary painting on a large outdoor scale

A site visit to the handball court has been arranged for: Wednesday 7th September at 2pm. This is an opportunity to visit the site, meet with dlr representatives and discuss any questions that may arise in response to the brief.
Please email Louise Ward ( and Cc: Paul Conlon ( to confirm your availability to attend the site visit.
