[Creative Writing Opportunity] Inside
Monday 26th Sep 2011
To compliment their forthcoming exhibition, Inside, Blank Media Collective will be producing an accompanying piece of related writings – short fiction, reportage, memoir, and poetry. These may be existing works, or works created in response to the brief. The publication is intended as a bespoke lateral accompaniment to the Inside exhibition; a provocation of unexpected thoughts and connections in the consciousness of the viewer.

Inside is an open call-out to practitioners working within a variety of mediums, which explore the psychological connection between the viewer and the work. Through a process of immersing the participant within the viewing space, Inside aims to focus on the notion of art as a trigger for the generation of a personal narrative. Work submitted may be ambitious, subtle or intimate and can cover a range of mediums including (but not specific to) sound, sculpture, installation, text and so on.
There will be a special drop-in session on Tuesday 13 September, 5-7pm at BLANKSPACE where you will be able to meet with the curators to discuss any questions that you may have and to get advice about your submission.
