During lockdown we have been thinking about ways to bring you all sorts of activities and content to make life that little bit more inspiring whilst confined to your homes.
We hope you have enjoyed our online offerings; we now have a real treat lined up. We have teamed up with Wolfgang Tillmans’ Between Bridges foundation to offer A2 posters created by internationally acclaimed artists to our supporters for £50 each as part of the 2020Solidarity project. These posters are unsigned and unlimited editions and will be available from us for a limited time (12 June – 24 July 2020). The project is generously covering the printing and shipping of the posters to the participating cultural venues, so 100% of the proceeds can be used by the Poetry School to support our survival through the pandemic.
Our participating artists are: Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Marlene Dumas, Heike-Karin Föll, Andreas Gursky, Glenn Ligon, Ralf Marsault and Heino Muller (25/34 Photographers), Ebecho Muslimova, Yinka Shonibare, Wolfgang Tillmans, Luc Tuymans, Gillian Wearing and Carrie Mae Weems.
The posters are the ideal gift and memento of this (hopefully) once in a lifetime experience. Every penny raised will go to the Poetry School and will enable us to offer more free activities and more inspiration during this difficult time for everyone in the cultural sector.
You can collect your poster(s) in person; we can’t wait to welcome you again into the Poetry School for a cup of tea, a browse of our library and a chat once we re-open our doors, which will not be until after the end of the campaign.
You can also choose to have your poster(s) delivered to you (within the UK). Please be advised this could take several weeks until we are back in the physical school.
We are very grateful to Wolfgang Tillmans, Between Bridges, and all of the artists involved.
Thank you for your support and friendship at this time – we really appreciate every purchase.
