Postcards & Stories

This year’s visual art theme reflects the area’s status as a ‘picture postcard’ holiday destination, where we are lucky enough to live all year.

Postcards tell stories – in  pictures and in the messages written in the small space available – alternative tweets?

We’d like to decorate the festival site with:

  • a huge postcard ‘quilt’, incorporating the ones shown here;
  • postcard bunting;
  • other postcard-related things – ideas welcome!

We’d also like to put on an exhibition of postcard-sized artworks for sale.

We need your help…

Postcards and Stories Art Project – how to get involved

  • Make a postcard-sized artwork – any subject, any media – and donate it to us for exhibition and sale, in aid of the Festival. Make several – it can be addictive!
  • Arts and crafts groups are invited to create a collection of hand-made postcard-sized artworks for display as arty postcard bunting – a (very) small grant is available from Festival funds for materials. Email for more information: janeetitley@gmail.com
  • Donate your collected picture postcards to make into decorative art. Any postcards will do, blank or used. If they have been written on, please cover up or scribble out names and addresses with a permanent marker. Leave them in our box.
  • Come to a work day during May half term (w/b 28 May) and help make postcard decorative art for the festival. Leave your contact details in our box or email janeetitley@gmail.com – we’ll be in touch with dates, times and venue,
  • Make up your own postcard-related art activity and talk to us about incorporating it in the Festival – ideas include: postcard poetry, postcard advertisements (eg for a group or business); objects made from postcards.
