Upwardly Mobile

Upwardly Mobile

We are building a large cardboard boat inspired by George Wyllie’s ‘Paper Boat’ and the many other paper boats collected for WCAD. Upward Mobility Art Students have built and decorated two boxes that will be left in two locations within the Arts Complex building. Residents of Arts Complex are invited to write or draw anything on paper in response to the motto of WCAD – ‘Art is a catalyst for caring and sharing’. Once these responses are collaged onto the boats, they will be exhibited in Gallery 2 on the 3rd Floor of Arts Complex from 17th – 20th February 2012.

Great green images including flickr WCAD green circle group

“This is a really interesting idea. In support of World Community Arts Day, this group is dedicated to photos or artistic crafts that have been inspired by the green circle logo of the event. It led to some gorgeous abstract works, including photography, that you will be sure to enjoy. There is no limit on submissions, and the group has more than 1,400 photos – impressive, given how specific the niche is.”

Paperboats

We are building a large cardboard boat which is inspired by George Wyllie’s ‘Paper Boat’ and the many paper boats that are collected for each WCAD.
Students have built and decorated 2 boxes which will be left in two locations within the AC building. We are asking residents of AC to write, draw – anything on paper in response to the motto of WCAD – ‘Art as a catalyst for caring and sharing’
These responses on paper will then be collaged onto the boat. The boat will then be exhibited in Gallery 2 on the 3rd floor from 17-20 February 2012.
