Public Art and Schools
With the state’s ambitious School Building Programme, there are many very significant opportunities for schools and colleges to work with artists through the Per Cent for Art Scheme. Artworks are made specifically for the school context, can be in any artform, and often actively and creatively involve the students and staff.

Greystones Educate Together National School appointed a voluntary committee with relevant expertise to oversee the per cent for art commissioning process. An external curator, Máire Davey, was appointed specifically for her expertise in working in a highly collaborative way as meaningful involvement from the students and school was viewed as central to the process. The procurement route chosen was limited invited competition.
