ArtColab has been a brain child that I’ve always wanted to develop but never dreamt it would be on the beautiful island of Grenada. ArtColab is an umbrella under which all creative minds at any level can group together, network and collaborate on different artistic projects.The aim is to provide a supportive network that each member can refer to when in need of encouragement, guidance and knowledge.
‘Windows‘ is ArtColab’s first project; it is a collaboration that brings together art, poetry and song. This is an open call for participation for both writers and visual artists. The writers will submit 1-3 poems/songs and two (2) words that best describe the pieces. This information is then handed over to a visual artist who will proceed to draw/paint an image to accompany the written submission. When the art work is complete there will be an art exhibition of all the work produced, including performances of each poem/song.
The performance will give the audience the opportunity to look in to the lives of different characters, both Mother Earth and Death will be putting in an appearance for the apartment block where all these characters live is no ordinary ONE!! Your poems and songs can be about anyone or anything you choose to give a voice to, you are free to be as creative as you want.
For ‘Windows‘ to be a success we need you! If you are a visual artist, poet and/or singer interested in this collaborative and interactive creative exhibit please contact me at 416-5779 or email firstname.lastname@example.org no later than June 16th 2014 so that we can begin this creative process together.
Thank you for your time and reading this post.
