Imagine using your voice to design a headwrap and possibly win.

You have the chance to speak out by creating new designs for Africa’s headwrap, in a bid to let you say something about your life. Let your creativity be your voice.

I’M STILL HERE is run by African art gallery Azawala in Elephant and Castle, London in conjunction with charity Bridging Arts.

Azawala, a play on words from the Fante language of Ghana loosely translated to mean “It’s Your Choice” it has featured at many cultural events, markets, fairs, festivals, exhibitions and fashion shows. It  focuses on Unique Contemporary African Art which is emerging and now has a strong presence in the global Art world.

The majority of Azawala pieces are sourced directly from the artists and bought for a reasonable fee. Once sales are made, an additional percentage is sent to the artist to ensure fair reward for their artistic flair.

Bridging Arts tackles difficult issues in society through art and art-related activities giving people without a voice a platform and the chance to speak out.

Its projects, exhibitions, events and workshops bring people of different cultures, interests and backgrounds together to interact, create and learn, commissioning work, stage and tour exhibitions, develop Education packs and offer workshops to engage audiences. Visit www.bridging-arts.org

“Our gallery is in the heart of an area where the individual is being squeezed out,” says gallery director Jos Brient. “We’ve seen what’s been happening here so we decided to launch this competition. We want people to create designs that say something about their lives.

“You don’t have to be African – or a fashion student – or a print maker. You just have to have a voice and want to tell us about your life and experience.”

The winning design will be commercialized and showcased during Black History Month this October.

Guidelines:

Designs – to be reproduced on a 50cm x 50cm square – can be on paper or submitted digitally with a brief statement telling us your thinking and inspiration.

All entries, whether digital or on paper, must be received by 31 August 2016. Post to Azawala, 152 KEMP HOUSE, CITY ROAD, LONDON EC1V 2NX or email to info@bridging-arts.org
