‘Postcards from the Edges’
‘Postcards from the Edges’ is a creative project by United Response which offers a blank canvas for expression to anyone affected by disability or mental health. DaDaFest newsletter reader, Val, created the postcard ‘Gesture: Reach Out’, Val said ‘Whenever I revisit this image I feel it has an emotive positive quality which can be applied in so many ways and I hope it will make a suitable submission for ‘Postcards from the Edges’.
The website: postcardsfromtheedges.org.uk is the project hub and allows you to create postcards or upload pre-made ones. Anyone can enter and if you prefer, you can design one offline by requesting a postcards pack from: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Later this year, four art galleries across the country, including Camp and Furnace in Liverpool (w/c 4 November) will host exhibitions displaying a selection of the postcards.
