Spring! The Batley Mural Project

Invitation for expression of interest from Kirklees based artists


We are looking forward to Spring and to launching a new mural trail across Batley along with new commissions and training opportunities for artists. Please see here for information about the project and information on how to submit your expression of interest.



You’ll notice that we haven’t set budgets for the commissions yet. As each site will have different requirements in terms of site preparation, access, equipment hire (scaffolding/cherry pickers etc) and fees for artists, we will treat each commission individually.

However, we imagine individual artists fees will be in the range of £2,000 – £6,000, depending on the scale of the work and the artists experience.

Once we have the expressions of interest and sites confirmed we will then invite selected artists to develop more detailed design proposals with outline budgets.


If you would like to have an informal chat about the project, please email our Arts Producer Gaynor on


Deadline: Monday 1 March, 12noon.
