14th of February-29 March 2019
If you are in any way affected by Brexit and want to express your situation and feelings through an artwork, poem or short story and share it more widely, please keep reading this open invitation.
Launch of a digital art collection
We are launching the creation of the open access digital collection Say it with Art and would love you to contribute by submitting an artwork, poems or short stories about Brexit. We would like to give individuals a voice through art. To express, communicate and connect with others from across the UK and other European countries.
We hope that the Say it with Art collection will be valuable to capture the turbulent moments in which we live, and provide a snapshot of our times to politicians and future generations beyond the dominating, and often polarised, journalistic and political voices. The collection will help others gain deeper insights into the everyday reality, hopes, dreams and fears, of individuals, and their experiences
All work received will be reviewed and work that is respectful and non abusive will be included in the Say it with Art collection.
Our invitation is open to anybody who has something to say about Brexit in the language and format of their choice. To submit your contribution, please access the following Google form at
This project is supported by the
- MA in Creative Writing Innovation and Experiment at the University of Salford (http://www.salford.ac.uk/pgt-courses/creative-writing-innovation-and-experiment)
- Creative Academic Network (http://www.creativeacademic.uk/).
- MA Creative Writing (https://www.winchester.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/courses/ma-creative-writing/) and MA Writing for Children and Young Adults (https://www.winchester.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/courses/ma-writing-for-children-and-young-adults/) at the University of Winchester
Please note, the invitation to submit will remain open until midnight on the 29th of March 2019. Thereafter, the team and supporters of this initiative, will review submissions and put the collection together. An announcement will be made via social media channels using the hashtag #sayitwithart when the collection is ready and how it can be accessed.
If you are the Programme Leader of a BA or an MA in Creative Writing or an Art and Design programme anywhere in Europe please feel free to invite your students to submit their work for this collection.
We are really looking forward to your contributions and seeing this collection grow.
