Grab a cuppa and have a read over issue 5 of our newsletter! You can read it here.
Our series of mail art newsletters have been created from the thoughts and musings originating from a mail art project we started in May 2020 - a way of continuing to exchange art with people whilst we cannot be in the same physical space. It focuses on life during this time in the North East of Glasgow and beyond, as well as art work and photography, from Platform’s groups and the local community. This newsletter was also printed and posted to members of the local community and Platform’s Taking Part groups.
The mail art project works in that participants are sent a copy of the latest collection of artworks, a blank piece of paper and a stamped addressed envelope - as well as copy of the previous newsletter. This is accompanied with a letter that has a question or provocation or two and invites them to make use of the paper and send us a response - drawing, photograph, story, poem, joke - it’s all allowed! We then use these in the newsletters.
If you know someone that might like to join in or you would like to get involved yourself please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0141 276 9696 [OPT 1]. We’d love to hear from you!
Stay safe and stay creative!
