Deadline for Christmas card designs and further information

Event Start Date:
7th April 2019
Event End Date:
19th May 2019
Event Venue:
No.84, 84 Parrock Road, Gravesend, DA12 1QF

I’m organising a community art project to fund another Christmas lunch at No. 84 this year and I’d love as many people as possible to get involved – 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 (at cost by Singlewell Stationery and Print http://www.singlewell.co.uk/) and sold in packs of 6, with all profits going to fund the 2019 Christmas lunch at No. 84. 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:

  • Let me know you want to take part via ‘contact’ on this website, or via Facebook etc
  • 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 duncangrant158@gmail.com – please put your name and contact details in the email
    OR
  • You can send me the original to be photographed by the talented Roger Crosby. Please remember to write your name and contact details on the back.
    For those of you in the Gravesend area, I will arrange some local collection points and let people know where these are via Facebook. I’ll also keep this ‘Event’ post updated with the latest news and information.
    If you live further afield and need to send an original, drop me an email and I’ll send you my postal address.

RULES
Only one – designs must be rectangular. They can be in any size and any medium because they are all going to be photographed.

Here is what I’ll do:

  • Collect the images and arrange for originals to be photographed
  • Get the cards printed and put into packs
  • Arrange the exhibition(s) and launch
  • Put them up for sale online and at events
  • Collect the money and forward it to No.84 to cover all the costs of Christmas lunch, with any extra going to Crisis at Christmas.

The GATHERING: Small Town workshop

Event Start Date:
23rd March 2019
Event End Date:
23rd March 2019
Event Venue:
Manor Community Primary School, Keary Road, Swanscombe, DA10 0BU

The gathering is a culmination of the Ebbsfleet Healthy New Town Programme, bringing together artists and local communities for a celebration of arts, creativity, food and well-being.

As part of the programme, three artists – Esther Collins, Nicole Collins and Siobhan Schwartzberg – have been working with local residents, community groups and schools across Ebsfleet Garden City since September 2018 to develop new collaborative artworks to be revealed at the GATHERING. Come and meet these artists and find out more about their work.

You can also take part in a range of ‘Have a go’ workshops, one of which will be led by me.

Have a go at making an edible sculpture, singing, drumming, Bhangra dancing or aerial acrobatics. Or for the less energetic, just decorate a plant pot, plant some seeds or sit back and enjoy some local food. There is something for all the family.
