Artist Opportunity!

28 Jul

Revive MS Support wishes to commission an artist/designer to create a suitable artwork for its new Therapy and Administration Centre in Moorpark Court, Govan, Glasgow.

The purpose of the artwork is to recognise the contributions made by everyone who has helped us to buy and fit out the new Centre and to pay for the development of our services providing care and support to people who are living with Multiple Sclerosis as well as their carers/families.

The artwork will be displayed within the Reception Area of the new Centre. The budget for the commission is up to £3,700, including materials and artist’s fee.
