BID are working in partnership with Wolverhampton Train Station and WM Trains to commission 2 art murals for the blank walls of the new Customer Lounge and Waiting room at their shiny new Train Station building.

They are inviting artists to submit their ideas, concepts and sketches for the 8.5m by 2m metre waiting room wall and the 4.3m by 2m metre customer lounge.
They want to achieve a warm and friendly welcome through the murals, using an artwork that provides a positive welcome to this key gateway into Wolverhampton City Centre and surrounding rail network.

• The design should be easily recognisable / interpreted as people might only be passing through for quick periods of time.
• The design should represent the city’s strong future and rich heritage, its multicultural community cohesion and provide a positive presence suitable for the busy station.
• The tone of the mural should inject a sense of belonging and the colour palette should reinforce a positive customer journey by rail.
• Designs for each space should relate to one another possibly by including common colours and themes.

The selected artist will receive £1000 plus costs of materials up to £250 covered by the project, funded by Wolverhampton BID.

Please submit your sketch / draft design concepts and colour
palettes by 18th February 2022

Please email any concepts to
[email protected]
or send them to the BID team:

Students wishing to gain that valuable experience within an established arts charity and supportive team—where professional arts practice engages communities in collective creative activities—there's a range of roles available.

In this session, Amber and Will discuss their own career journeys, giving an insight into the work they now do and the steps they took to establish their careers. Their stories are not only relevant to product design students, but anyone wishing to move into design more broadly.
