Open call to help dress town centre building

Earlier this year, Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company (WBRC) chose artist, architect and designer Shiraaz Ali to develop an art commission to dress the façade of the Sandhurst Block, the former main battalion building which sits in the new town centre.

Shiraaz won an open call to artists with his submission that focused on re-wilding Whitehill & Bordon by establishing a living green wall on the central façade of the Sandhurst Block. The vertical garden will be bookended by wraps featuring Shiraaz’s illustrative designs, as well as ‘secret garden’ hoardings running along the boundary of the building, all of which come together to create a piece of art that celebrates nature, community and the the future.

An important part of Shiraaz Ali’s vision is that the artwork is in part designed by the people it is made for. The planned artwork features over 50 panels that will be created by the Whitehill & Bordon community. Using paint, pencils, collage, photography or any other medium, local residents can be part of the vision and make a mark on their community by submitting their artwork to be included.

WBRC is asking for artwork submissions to be entered by Monday 24th May. Submissions should be at 300 dots per inch and should be sent to
