As part of the Government’s implementation of the recommendations of the Ryan Report, a Committee was appointed by the Minister for Education & Skills to oversee the design and commissioning of a memorial for survivors of Institutional Abuse.

Following the consultative process, a competition is being organised and administered on behalf of the Committee by the Commissioners of Public Works. The competition is open to individuals and consortia and to professional and non-professional applicants.

Stage 1 of the competition, seeking expressions of interest, has been launched. The closing date for receipt of expressions of interest is Thursday, 13 October 2011. A short-list of no more than ten applicants will be selected to go forward to Stage 2, which will require those short-listed to submit detailed and specific proposals for each stage of the design, planning and realisation of the memorial.

A document outlining details of the competition, including selection criteria, indicative dates, and competition jury membership is available on the Department of Education & Skills web-site www.education.ie  and www.publicart.ie

A budget of up to €500,000 is being set aside for the project which will be managed by the OPW.
