We ARConnected

We have been running an exciting project called We ARConnected, to help people stay creative while they’re self-isolating, or on lockdown. And want to give everyone the chance to get involved.

We’re looking for people to make creative pieces of work, from poetry and stories, to textiles, photography, art, and music; and then send them to us.

All of the creations that people contribute will be made into a We ARConnected scrapbook and future exhibition, to celebrate how our community came together and connected creatively throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

If you’re interested in taking part, we'll be announcing a new theme every fortnight with a different creative theme to start you off. Every fortnight’s theme will have a ‘hand in date’ for you to return your creative work to us by post, or online. You can send your finished creations to us by emailing or posting them to ARC, Dovecot Street, Stockton on Tees, TS18 1LL.

We’ll also have one final overall deadline after ARC is reopened to the public – so there’s no need to worry if your creation is too big to post, or you can’t leave your home to return anything for a while yet.

The creations that you send us for each fortnight’s theme could involve anything you choose… from a recipe for something you’ve made; a recording of a song you’ve written; a drawing, or a short story – to upcycled sculptures; costume designs, crochet/knitted items, short films, cartoon strips, or even a letter to a fictional or historical person. You can also submit as many creations for each theme as you like. The only limit is your own imagination!

Let’s show the world how creatively We ARConnected!
