The latest updates on exhibitions, projects and opportunities!
This month we are celebrating our 6 month anniversary of
ARTISTS RESPONDING TO ... Zine!
Issue 6 will be an extended 60 page special and include the works of 48 International artists, creatives and writers responding to environmental, political and social issues.
Daily Creativity Prompt Challenge
Daily prompts throughout February to help inspire a daily artwork or poem responding to environmental, political or social issues or triumphs!
We wanted to create an initiative to keep our creative juices flowing during lockdown, and help with daily motivation to carry on producing art. So here is our February ’Daily Artwork and Poetry Challenge’!
In this image you will find a prompt for each day of the month; which can all be linked to current news, issues and movements that you will all hopefully resonate with. We would like you to use these daily prompts as inspiration to create an artwork or poem in response to a happening you are passionate about. Once you have completed your artwork or poem, post it on Instagram and tag us @artistsrespondingto in the image for the chance to be featured in March’s Zine, Issue 7! Alternatively, email an image of your artwork to:
We hope that you enjoy participating in our February Daily Artwork and Poetry Challenge, and we can’t wait to see your responses! Happy creating
The Postcard Project
to one crazy year
The artworks from the initiative 'The Postcard Project' have been curated into a book. This book is jam packed with incredibly moving and powerful artworks responding to an unprecedented year. We have all been through many emotional challenges or changes, and this book has a really inspiring and uplifting sense of resilience and community. Although the postcard artworks in this book are incredibly personal, they shed light on everything this year has thrown at us collectively, which I’m sure we can all relate to.
The book is a memoir and a beautiful reminder that, if we can get through 2020, we can get through anything.

Issue's 1 and 2 are now stocked at Good Press Bookshop in Glasgow, Scotland!
Thank you to the 200 artists taking part in this exciting project!
The book is now stocked and available to purchase via our shop. We will be exhibiting all 200 postcards in an exhibition in 2021.
We have been overwhelmed with the incredible response to The Postcard Project! We had only planned to send out 100 postcards across the UK, but instead have doubled this to 200 in just one week!
We have sent the 200 postcards to UK based artists, inviting them to respond to and reflect on a piece of news or social, political or environmental happening that emotionally and/or physically impacted them over the course of the year 2020.
These artwork are ranging from oil painting, acrylic painting, watercolour painting, drawings, ink, etchings, screen prints, collage, printing onto the postcards, sewing or embroidering onto the cards and much more!
We will have launched a book to celebrate and document this project which is now available for purchase! Follow us on social media for sneak peaks of the diverse artworks involved!
