S Y M B I O S I S | A Collective Art Project For Human Rights & Climate Awareness
My next project is called ” Symbiosis” (working name) and it will be about co-existing in any form. It is about our relationship with ourselves, our friends & families, our environment and other life forms. It’s about adjusting to our (new) circumstances, changing our minds every now and then, and coming to terms with our losses, wishes and needs.
During the lockdown I had a couple of thoughts on art:
– How art is uniting us
– How art is capable of moving us
– How art helps you share a perspective
– How art will always be an effective way of protesting
Paint | Draw | Compose | Dance | Write | Video Art | Photography
During the writing of this poetry book I hope to motivate artists to send in a piece of their artwork, and to give us a glimpse of their perception of the world.
Visit my new project page to learn more about Symbiosis.
The book will be published in the UK, but there’s a lot of sales in the Netherlands and the US as well. The book will be available for online purchase world wide.
I am writing for charity so I won’t be able to pay you, but your name and website will be published as well.
Last time the money went to Sussex Homeless Support which runs a street kitchen to feed everybody on the streets. In the winters they make sure people have a roof over their heads. For the next project I am still deciding on who to support. There’s so many people who need help! I was thinking of the Red Cross but I think that we might make more impact by choosing a smaller charity organisation to support. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
There’s two ways:
1. You can send me a piece you would like to have published and I’ll either match it up with something I’ve already written, or I might write something accustomed to the image.
2. You can ask me to send you a piece you can (digitally) draw/ paint / dance / compose to.
To make sure as much money as possible actually makes it to charity, the content will be printed black & white. You art will also be shown in the online exposition and various social media platform.
A contract proposal will be available online shortly, to make sure your (copy) rights are protected. ❤
I will also make sure to put up a gallery with collaborating artists and their information.
For examples of submissions find the slideshow below or visit the SYMBIOSIS | SUPPORTING ARTISTS page. These are the first submissions I have received by Jacob Simon and multi-awardwinning fine art photographer Jack Savage
I am so proud to be working with such talented artists!
