Caring/Carers Exhibition Call for Entries Now Open!
Call for Artists who are or who have been CARERS
DEADLINE 31st December 2008
An open art exhibition and weekend of public events centred around the theme of ‘Caring/Carers, will take place in late Spring 2009.
The exhibition is open to people of ALL AGES who are Carers or who have been Carers to submit creative visual, audio, written, spoken word, music or performance art on the theme of Caring/Carers. Although other themes by carers are acceptable, and the importance of creativity and art in providing respite for Carers can also be explored.
The aim of the exhibition is to showcase the creativity and experience of Carers in the South West and Britain. Being a Carer gives people a unique insight into both the human condition and the human spirit. It can also be a lonely and isolating experience. But, it is in that space, where Carers live and breathe, that creativity and imagination can blossom. And it is that which we seek in this exhibition.
This is an open call for all artists who are or who have been Carers, working with any type of media to submit work for inclusion in the art exhibition to be held during Carers Week in June 2009. The exhibition will launch and the event will be accompanied by discussion and performances of music and drama. Work will also be available to view online.
We are looking for work that resonates with the theme of the exhibition, and can include any aspect of an individual’s experience of caring and those they care for.
Individuals, groups of Carers or families are encouraged to submit work on the theme.
You may submit your entry using electronic format files on CD, or printed images and info (max size A4 please).
If you would like discs or images returned, you must provide a stamped, addressed envelope. All submissions should be received before 31st December 2008 please. Feel free to contact Ina for an informal discussion.
EARLY ENQUIRIES AND SUBMISSIONS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED!
While we endeavour to ensure safe handling of artwork, insurance of the work against loss or damage is at the artist’s discretion and is the responsibility of the artist.
