What a terrific project, I wonder if there are any artists among us that would be interested in participating. Please pass around and spread. Thanks.

The Tourism Team at Medway Council are looking for artists to design artwork for and paint 3 new benches in Rochester. The benches will be in the shape of open books and the Tourist Team would like them to have a Dickens theme.

This will not include community workshops but can include community consultation, which always has positive benefits in projects such as these. For instance including some kind of community consultation via a poll/online voting system, possibly with support from the library service. 

It would additionally make sense that the artwork for the new street furniture is meaningful in relation to Medway and it’s connections with Dickensian novels. For example particular references to buildings in Rochester, e.g. Satis House/Restoration House and Eastgate House etc.

The dimensions of the benches are as follows.

Dimensions (mm)

Large: H 920 x L 1450 x W 700


Large: 36kg
