Hey New Fringers! We hope you’ve been safe and well throughout these strange times. We hope you’re still out there sculpting, singing, painting, drawing, making, and doing all the wonderfully creative things that this community is capable of.
We’re at a pivotal moment for the New Fringe, and our momentum has dipped a little bit thanks to the pandemic. It’s time to get the ball rolling again.
It’s time for another Artbomb!
ArtBomb #2 was a success; we created some wonderful art, and had a chance to view and discuss it together on Zoom. The social aspect of that evening was just as important as the creative aspect. You can reminisce with this video!
We’re planning Artbomb #3 for Saturday 5th September!
You can share whatever creative work you’ve been making lately,
or you could create something specifically for the occasion.
Just like last time, we're asking you to create a “home gallery” by taking over a room or even a corner of your home for the day. This art can be in any form – photography, painting, sculpture, music, digital, performance, creative writing, or whatever else floats your creative boat. Try to think outside the box and present your work in interesting ways. You could play with lighting, music, or movement to create an “experience”. You have the option of recording a short film of your home gallery, which will be shown on Zoom.
We know what we’re asking might be a bit daunting for some people, and not everyone knows how to record video, so here’s another option. You could set up your ‘home gallery’ on the day of ArtBomb, and then just present it live on Zoom! Even if this is just you leafing through a sketchbook and talking about your creative process, it’s all part of the artistic melting-pot that is Artbomb and we want you to take part!
Members and non-members can also attend just to take part in the discussion and connect with other arty friends. If you have any questions, or need help, you can contact Holland at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sacha at email@example.com.
It’s time to shake up our logo!
We love our logo, and we want to keep the basics of it. But we’d love to reach out to the New Fringe community and see who’s up for giving it a fresh look. Play with the style a bit, change the colour scheme, soften the lines maybe?
So we’re putting out a call to visual artists to enter our logo competition!
You can use any visual medium, so long as you can capture a good quality image of it. Don’t forget that we want this logo to be based on the original one. We’ll get everyone to vote on the entries and use the one with most votes. Here’s Sacha’s entry above as an example, which was made by tearing paper.
Please send your logo entries to firstname.lastname@example.org
