Call for submission to online showcase

A Series of Unexpected Events

an online showcase as part of the London Creativity & Wellbeing Week

 

The Well Made Project will be hosting an online exhibition as part of the London Creativity and Wellbeing Week. http://creativityandwellbeing.org.uk/week/events/series-unexpected-events

From 4th-12th June 2015 we will be featuring the work of artists whose practice focuses on art and health. Throughout the course of the week a story will unfold, told each day by a different artist using a different medium. The piece aims to explore the idea that life is made up of a series of unexpected events that impact upon our wellbeing, each different and often irregular but of equal importance to us. The exhibition will take place right here on our blog that people can subscribe to and receive each day directly to their inbox.

The piece aims to have a personal feel, a bit like receiving post from a stranger, and give the impression all those involved are part of a well kept secret. We hope to bring a little bit of magic to the everyday and help people reconnect with the act of storytelling.

We are looking for artists to submit work for our online exhibition. We would like artists to submit existing work, or proposals for new work that represents an event in life that would positively or negatively impact upon your wellbeing. Selected works will then be pieced together to develop a narrative throughout the week.

We will consider any art form including:

  • Visual art
  • Film / Video / Photography
  • Live performance recordings
  • Music / Sound
  • Writing

Work is particularly welcomed from artists who use their work to promote health issues or to improve their own wellbeing.

As this is a not for profit project aiming to raise awareness of arts and health we are unfortunately unable to offer a fee, however the work will be distributed with a wide audience and promoted as part of London Creativity and Wellbeing Week.

 

If you would like to create a new piece or submit an existing work for consideration, please send a short bio, a proposal or description of the work plus images/links to emmaandelizabetharts@gmail.com by Monday 4 May 2015, selected artists must then be ready to send the work to us via email by Monday 1 June 2015.

 

The Well Made Project is a series of carefully curated events aimed to spark conversations around art and health in places they might not usually occur. We are interested in people, their stories, and promoting the work of others who help to enrich our everyday lives. The project is co-directed by Emma O’Rourke and Elizabeth Holly Hurt, appearing in various venues across Leeds, London and online. www.facebook.com/TheWellMadeProject
