CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: STRATHEARN ON LOCKDOWN
You might be feeling creatively stifled or maybe you’re looking for a new outlet for expression, but there’s no doubt that life across the world has been unrecognisably altered by the COVID-19 pandemic.
In our first ever public call, we are asking all of you - writers, artists, crafters, dabblers, brand-new-hobbyists and creative veterans alike - to send us your interpretation of Strathearn On Lockdown. And because age is no barrier to creativity, we want to see everyone joining in – juniors, seniors and in-betweeners.
What you do is up to you, whether it’s a piece of writing, a photo or series, a painting, illustration, drawing, sculpture, a piece of embroidery, a short film or any other creative output. You can send us photos or videos of your finished pieces for sharing on our social media platforms, and we would love to be able to feature them in our physical exhibition at Strathearn Arts, 6 Comrie Street. To arrange to deliver a piece for inclusion, please contact (social distancing rules will apply).
The exhibition will be hosted virtually on the Strathearn Arts website, with a view to allowing real-life visitors access to the show as soon as it is safe to do so. Upon completion of the exhibition, we would love to include your piece in an auction to help raise funds that will allow Strathearn Arts to continue and flourish in a difficult post-COVID world.
So go on – express yourself!
