We are seeking a designer to create innovative design concepts for the way that The Stove:
·      communicates with the people and context around the building
·      integrates external spaces with internal spaces
·      provides for capacity for performance/projection work etc

The designer will consider options such as canopies, location/quality of main entrance, blackout/external projection capacity, external landscaping.

The Stove: First Foot - two day projection project showing films specially commissioned from local artists
The Stove is an artists collective working in Dumfries on public art projects that engage the local population in the future of their town. The Stove is based in a building on the main square of the town centre.
Essential accessibility and general improvements need to be made to the building – this work is being delivered in partnership with Dumfries and Galloway Council. The successful designer will work as part of the overall design team under the direction of The Stove Curatorial Team and the Edward Marshall Trust.

The successful applicant will first undertake a research and development period leading to a concept design.
On acceptance of this initial work, the designer will develop the concept into a fully detailed and costed plan with all statutory permissions. (NB The Stove is a listed building in a conservation area)
£1000 – initial concept development
£3000 – fully detailed plans ready for implementation
