#ARTCONNECTS19 - CONNECTING OUR KIDS WITH THEIR ART. AND OUR COMMUNITIES WITH THEIR SCHOOLS.
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM
JANUARY 2019 | 2000 PORTRAITS
ART? WHAT'S THAT?
ART: Is what we call it when what we do might connect us to someone else.
You may have heard... the UK needs art more than ever before.
LET'S CONNECT OUR KIDS WITH THEIR ART. AND OUR COMMUNITIES WITH THEIR SCHOOLS
This action builds on the success of our #I♥ART BECAUSE #ARTCONNECTS Action from 2018 which saw several hundred portraits created, shot, printed displayed at a weekend #ARTCONNECTS event in London before being pasted across the UK.
Inspired by a film about how art connects by Elton John and a little lad in a challenged school community in Leeds, Yorkshire, England we've extended the #ARTCONNECTS19 Festival across the whole year and across the UK.
We launched it in the English Parliament and held a week of events across the UK with a long weekend of talks, performances, dance and activities in Notting Hill London.
We're now working on a programme of events and activities across the UK for the rest of the year, and would be delighted to hear from anyone, anywhere in the world who would like to be part of the #ARTCONNECTS19 Festival, maybe by running an #OURART19 event locally.
