The Postcards Project
The postcards fundraising project is an invitation to help Journey to Justice with your artwork. We are looking for expressions of interest in being part of an online art exhibition, to support our new project focused on economic justice and to mark the end of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UNDHR). This exhibition will enable the public to purchase an original artwork for a small donation.
We would like to invite you to produce an artwork using any medium – drawing, painting, print, collage, textiles etc. on a 6 x 4″ standard postcard.
The subject is the UNDHR Articles 22-27 focused on economic, social and cultural rights which are often neglected. We invite you to respond to one of the articles below in your artwork.
How will they be sold?
The postcards will be advertised on our website for purchase at £5 – £10 (or a special deal for multiple buys). We will also be encouraging supporters to donate what they can. The artwork will appear anonymous on our website, but will be signed on the back for the purchaser.
All participants will be asked to sign a disclaimer agreeing that the purchaser owns the art they buy.
If this is of interest to you can either complete this preformated email or download this expression of interest and email it to email@example.com by June 15th 2019.
Our deadline for artwork is the end of September.
