Looking for Contributors- Photography/Art Project!
Posted August 21st, 2012 - 3:25 pm by from Newcastle upon Tyne, England (Permalink)

My name's Lucy Walters and I'm an art student at Newcastle University in the UK. I'm coming to study in Istanbul next year, and I thought it might be interesting to start an exchange project between our two cities before I came!

I'm looking for contributors to an art website project, from Istanbul (you guys!) and Newcastle!

I'm looking for photos, videos, drawings, sketches, poems, recipes, or stories, all about your life in Istanbul, so that people in Newcastle can learn from it and in return we'll do the same! Text based work can be sent in both English and Turkish. :)

They'll all be put on one website, then each entry/photo will have its own personal QR barcode (it looks like this):


This barcode will be pasted on a wall in the partner city (so your artwork will be pasted on a wall in Newcastle) for members of the public to look at your work on their phones!

To email me photos/links to your photos, please email them to walterslucy@rocketmail.com

Or, to find out more information on the project and how to send paper copies of your photos, please visit the website:
