Description

 

The RWA has been successful in securing a NLHF Round 2 grant towards a £3.23m capital and audience engagement project, ‘Light and Inspiration’. The capital works will start in June 2021 and we hope to re-open to the public in February 2022 with our 169th Annual Open.

This project will undertake urgent and vital works to safeguard the future of one of Bristol’s best-loved institutions, the RWA, which has been nurturing new talent and championing equal opportunities for over 160 years. One of our major aims is to make our building as accessible as possible and the works include the installation of a new external lift, changing places toilet, accessible toilet and hearing loops. There will be an enlarged café and for the first time a free to view exhibition in a newly created gallery on the first floor. In the lower ground floor, we will be creating a new family and community room and history gallery.

Transforming first impressions will attract and enable more people to engage with our exceptional galleries, exhibitions and collections through remodelling the forecourt, opening up the facade and enhancing physical access.

We now wish to instruct specialists to ensure that our external signage is engaging and creative and attracts passers-by to explore further. It must also clearly indicate that we are an Art gallery. Once inside the building, signage must be welcoming and appropriately placed so that all visitors can understand the layout of the building and get where they need to quickly and efficiently. In addition there needs to be a donor recognition panel.

Applications must be submitted to nicola.prosser@rwa.org.uk by 5pm on Wednesday 10th March 2021.
