Open City

OPEN CALL ALERT! Collectivity Project

7 May: Building the Collectivity project via ZOOM
10 May: Submission deadline
21 May: Opening The City (digital release of the project)

The Collectivity Project is about, how, in quarantine, we can explore a different kind of collective; one where we can come into contact in an online space. Collectivity has a common goal; to think and draw, write and sing about constructing buildings and environments, ones which we want to experience with others.

Together, we will build our own Open City. There is an open call for participants to submit their contributions in the form of buildings, stories & playlists etc. with the deadline being Friday 10th May.

Create your own building with material that you have at home (cardboard, wine bottles, decks of cards). And if you’re feeling extra creative, share with us what is happening in the building! Perhaps you do this with a short story. Or perhaps you share a playlist of songs that are played in the building. Maybe you would like to share a recipe that is being cooked. We want to know what is happening in your building.

Together we can explore this new Open City 🙂
