Continuing the art for a cause discussion, I came across a similar website organized in the US for hurricane Katrina and rita relief. It’s a brilliant site, and I think it explains what I was talking about. http://www.25abovewater.com
I have developed a vague mini brief for the project, so if all of you could forward this on, and ask interested persons to leave a comment here or on your sites with their e mail addresses. That way we can compile a list of people and kick start it. The details will be worked out and shared once we have a list of the eager artists. People like writers can participate too. It would be interesting to have them team up with a visual artist for a collaborative poster. We should try and hit as many working artists from the community.
for: artists/photographers/graphic designers/illustrators/painters/printmakers/architects/textile designers/writers/
why: for the art community to come together, produce some memorable works of art, and sell them to benefit the relief efforts.
dynamics: the artists will be given a timeframe within which to produce the poster/art design and then all designs will be posted on a website to be sold. An exhibition of the posters will also be organized.
