For our final creative challenge, we are exploring the theme of doorways – we’d like you to make a creative response for your own front door. During the past few weeks and months, our doorways have become important symbols – of protection, safety, exchange, messages of communication, thresholds and crossings, but as we move into more relaxed measures in the coming months we will once again be able to welcome friends and family through our front doors.
We invite you to share a creative response with us that reflects your own experiences on the theme of Doorways during the pandemic. Whether you left notes out for the postie, or stood on the doorstep to clap with neighbours, exchanged shopping with relatives at a distance or put out signs or artworks to catch the eyes of passers by, we’d love your responses to reflect this.
We welcome contributions of all kinds, you might have been inspired by one of our earlier challenges and like to write, take a photograph, make a print, construct something from found materials in your home, a collage – or something entirely different. Decorate your front door and turn it into a living artwork? Paint your door? Make a painting of your door? We’d love to see your contributions.
As our homegrown project comes to a close, we will be looking to gather and share artworks from our micro commissions and creative challenges both online in an archive format, and in the real world – once it is safe to do so. Stay tuned to hear more from us. Final contributions should be shared with us by 30thJune, by email to [email protected]. #HomegrownDumfries.
