Rosa from Creative Lives got in touch with me about a photography project they were creating involving the people of East Anglia. ANYONE can submit. You don’t need to be a photographer. The result will be a digital exhibition launched with an in person event in Norwich. (Hopefully in person depending on restrictions etc… let’s keep out fingers crossed for 2022…)
Details are in this link. The deadline is FEB 6 2022. - https://www.creative-lives.org/newbeginnings-eastanglia
From the website
“An open-call photography exhibition to mark the New Year
We are delighted you have chosen to take part in the New Beginnings Open Call. Please fill in the feedback form below and upload your image(s).
- After a tough 2 years, how can we use the New Year as a fresh start?
- What changes do you see ahead? What do you hope the future will look like?
- What personal goals do you wish to accomplish?
To mark the turning of a new year, Creative Lives, BBC Radio Suffolk and BBC Radio Norfolk are creating a collective vision of hope by and for the members of our community. For this, we invite every person in East Anglia to send in up to two photographs based on the theme ‘New Beginnings’.
You do not need to have experience with photography to be involved. Using whatever device you have available, all ages, abilities and backgrounds are encouraged to get involved. The submission window is available from 1 January - 6 February 2022. Every image we receive is guaranteed to be included in an online photography exhibition that will run throughout February and March. The exhibition will be launched by an in-person event hosted by the BBC in late February.”
The theme New Beginnings. This is so broad and really open for you to take it where you want it to go. On the Creative Lives website you’ll also see a link to some hints and tips and Rosa kindly asked me to join them on Radio Norfolk where I had a chat with Sophie Little about ways to approach the theme and things you could think about exploring. Slide in at the 45 minute mark to hear us chat about the project. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p0bb4jls I’m really excited to see the images people have submitted.
