Getting Creative at intu Broadmarsh

Paint the Broadmarsh all the colours of Nottingham

Since being taken on by intu in April, that haven of underage mums, nanas and people that think Wimpy’s is fine dining - Broadmarsh - is finally taking measures to ‘update’ itself.

As part of this, intu are putting a call-out for Nottingham creatives to put pen to paper and submit their idea of Nottingham through the medium of art for a mural, which will be positioned in the heart of the Broadmarsh. Whether your vision of the city is past, present or future, or if you want to celebrate dance, art or poetry, there are no limitations here. Personally we’re thinking of a huge picture of Fish Man brandishing his legendary cockles.

A panel will be picking the top ten submissions, who will be invited to work with a dedicated artist to make their dream come to life. So don’t worry if your drawing of  a person looks more like a plucked turkey wearing a sombrero but your vision of the city is better than than Dante’s Paradiso, you’re still in with a chance. And if you still don't win, that's okay, because selected works will be displayed in the Drury's Lane entrance, so you can drag your friends down to see your art displayed for the whole of Nottingham. 

Entry forms can be downloaded from intu’s website or picked up from the main desk in Broadmarsh. You’ve only got until Monday 21 October to get your applications in, so get those paint brushes fired up.
