Our biggest production yet for the Folk Beasts outreach project!
In collaboration with The Golden Thread Project we produced Folk Beasts, an outreach project exploring the magical and diverse creatures celebrated via folklore throughout time.
We invited 17 artists and illustrators to create make-at-home Art Packs, enabling people to participate remotely to create a user-generated online art exhibition that you can view on our site now. Combining The Golden Thread Project’s extensive knowledge and love for all things folklore with Hart Club’s diverse audience, we created a magical world full of freshly conceived and reimagined folk beasts.
Each pack was an edition of 100. That’s 1700 free art packs in total that were distributed amongst our network – this includes people of all ages and backgrounds and artists with disabilities, dementia, brain injury, autism and other neurological variations. Each pack was expertly printed on our trusty risograph printer with the special help from Adam of Octopress.
That’s a wrap! Art packs ready to ship.
