Artists' Real Lives for the Olympics

Ross Sinclair 'Real Life Scotland'

In 2012 the eyes of the world are on London and the UK for the world’s biggest sporting event, the London 2012 Olympics. We want to reflect this global occasion back to those people looking into the UK.

Visiting Arts wants to give artists from every country in the world the opportunity to tell the world what its like to live and work in their country in the 21st century. To inspire and be inspired. 

200 voices will profile, spread and showcase some of the world’s most exciting artists online throughout 2012. Launching on January 1, submissions will be streamed throughout the year.

We are asking for an image, short film, piece of music or text responding to these three questions-

·         What is it like to be an artist working in your country?

·         How do your local surroundings and context influence your work and your practice?

·        Is there anything you would like to say to other artists across the world about your situation?

If you would like to be involved please get in touch today to be one of our 200 Voices. We are welcoming responses from now and will need to receive them before Monday 26th September 2011.
