|In light of the mass outbreak of Corona Virus (COVID-19) and its effects on social gatherings, and the closure of museums, galleries, cafes, bars and other places of congregation across the whole of the UK, Outspoken Arts will take their Spring & Summer 2020 programme online.|
This major interruption to our normal ways of working, we know, affects all of us. It affects our lives, our livelihoods and our social connections. We are reaching out to say that we wish to support our communities, artists and partners to help keep us all creatively engaged and connected in this most vital of times.
We recognise that many people, especially those with protected characteristics, will be feeling vulnerable, confused, angry and isolated at this time.
We want to offer a space for you to ENGAGE, CHAT, CREATE & CONNECT.
OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS
We are looking to support, promote and present work by independent artists. The gig economy on which many of us rely has all but stalled. We can offer a digital space to show work, chat, share ideas or meet new collaborators.
Whatever you want to share we are open to it. We’re creating an open platform for sharing art and experiences. If you’d like a detailed brief just ask the team and we’ll send you some guidance.
You can share content via this link
(Please note we won’t publish any explicit or obscene content and reserve the right to refuse any entry.)
Please note we are unable to offer any fees or payments at this time due to funding constraints. We do want to be supportive and hope to offer paid engagements later in the Autumn, Winter, and in 2021, should things return to normal.
If you have any tutorials, workshops or masterclasses you’d like us to share please send us links. These can include any paid links for your promotion.
We will share our content via our social channels (up to 10,000 followers) via E-flyers | Website | Youtube | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram.
