Alongside a rich heritage of art, invention and innovation LBRuT is home to many visual artists, designers and makers with a diverse range of skills, knowledge and talent. There are plenty of opportunities to join in, engage with and explore this thriving community.
Art Unlocked is a response to the unfurling of COVID-19 by the artists, designers and makers of Richmond Art House Open Studios
As the initial COVID-19 lockdown restrictions in the UK begin to be eased, the Arts Service are asking the Richmond Art House Open Studios community to mark this unique time by submitting work in response to the stimulus 'Place - Distance – Society: Spring/Summer 2020'.
It’s an opportunity for the artists, designers and makers of Richmond to reflect on the past few weeks, consider what the future might hold and for the Arts Service to capture and share a snapshot of an extraordinary moment.
The intention is this body of work will then be shared at a live event. It will become a moment captured for a time when the community of our borough can come together to reflect, cheek by jowl, collectively, with each other.
Posted: Monday 1 June 2020
Deadline for submitting your work: Monday 13 July 2020.
We are encouraging participants who submit works to Art Unlocked to create video diaries to document their creative process and explain the inspiration for their creations.
This is not a requirement, only make a diary if you wish.
