I recently posted about this Christmas-themed community art project to raise money for local and national Christmas charities. https://duncangrantartist.com/2019/04/07/only-261-more-days-until-christmas-time-to-think-about-lunch/
I’ve already received some great designs – you can see some of them in the picture above – but we need MORE!
The more we get, the more money we can raise. But the deadline 19th MAY is approaching fast so get out your pens and brushes and get creative.
Anyone can join in – wherever you are in the world, whatever your your age, artistic skills, experience or ambitions. All you have to do is design a Christmas card and donate it to the project.
Designs will be made into A6 cards and sold in packs of 6, with all profits going to fund the 2019 Christmas lunch at Cafe No. 84 https://www.no84.co.uk/ for those who would otherwise be alone, and if we raise a lot of money, any extra will be donated to Crisis at Christmas.
Nearer to Christmas, we’ll have an exhibition of all the cards at No. 84 and a launch event. If loads of people get involved we could also have other exhibitions or events at local venues.
If you want to join in, here is what you have to do:
- Design a Christmas card that you are willing to donate to the project free of charge
- Get your design to me by the 19th May 2019
You can send a digital image of your artwork (minimum 300 dpi) to email@example.com – please put your name and contact details in the email
- You can send me the original to be photographed professionally. Please remember to write your name and contact details on the back.
- If you live further afield and need to send an original, drop me an email and I’ll send you my postal address.
Only one – designs must be rectangular. They can be in any size and any medium because they are all going to be photographed.
Please get involved, it will be fun.
