For the month of July 2017, we want to commission a new artwork by an
artist/writer or team of international standing, launched as part of the
MIX 2017 conference. The artwork will need to include original writing
from young people age 8-14. The aim is to encourage a high level of
engagement from all young people across England and we would welcome
innovative methods for mass participation such as crowdsourcing.
Following the successful delivery of the artwork the Paper Nations team
may wish to work with you to further develop the scope of your project.
We are keen to use the MediaWall project as a model of best practice for
embedding digital writing outreach programmes in schools across England
and especially the South-West.

in the Newton Park Campus of Bath Spa University, built into the Commons
building and surrounded by green fields, hills and trees. The nearly 8
metre high, 3x10 screen wall stands like a monolith awaiting an inscription.
