Fantastic commission opportunity!!

An exciting new commission for designers, product designers, artists and makers. Have you ever fancied designing, developing and manufacturing Blackpool inspired products ready for sale? Now is your chance!

We are looking for expressions of interest from three artists, designers or creative enterprises who would like to be considered for Project Object.

Project Object is seeking artists who will engage with Blackpool’s historic collections and built heritage to design a range of quality products inspired by the seaside resort which will be sold in the Grundy Art Gallery Shop and the Tourist Information Office Shop.

Blackpool Council has in its possession a wealth of materials which we hope will inspire contemporary and innovative design in a range of products and to be sold at different price ranges suitable for most pockets, and can range from more ‘mass produced’ products to bespoke and limited edition ranges.

We will be appointing three artists for Project Object, to undertake four weekly design sessions with the community each, and then to develop their work into saleable products.

For more information and to request an application, please email
We look forward to your ideas!
