#AsYouSeeIt 2 - Belonging 

Open Call | Our musicians need you!

Welcome to NW Live Art’s Online Creative Project #AsYouSeeIt 2.

The last year has been very challenging in many ways, yet we continue to be amazed by the wonderful resilience and creativity of our community. Our musicians are missing their audience, so we invite you to dig out your crayons, paints and cameras, and inspire them with your own artistic creations! 


Please share your creative response to the theme of 'belonging' and send us your drawings, paintings, words, photos, or something to show what ‘belonging’ means to you.


Your pictures will be loaded into a project gallery on our website for everyone to enjoy. Our musicians will select a handful of images from the gallery which really inspire them, and will respond to these pictures with a short improvised performance. Their performances will be filmed and uploaded to our website in split screen alongside their chosen pictures.


Please note, our musicians will not be able to respond to each individual picture, but we hope you enjoy them all and find your own inspiration from them.


During lockdown, we’ve all had a heightened sense of our place in the world; how we connect to our family, friends, strangers, our home and the world around us. #AsYouSeeIt hopes to give everyone a voice for their creativity and to our sense of belonging.

We welcome artwork from all ages. For submissions by children and young people under 16 years we ask that an appropriate parent/carer submits the work on their behalf. The closing date for submissions is Sunday 25 April 2021

Get creative and submit your brilliant artwork in response to the theme of 'belonging' here.
✔ Submissions will need to fit into a square or rectangular format.

We will share our musician’s reactions and performances on our social media page, so don’t forget to follow us at @nwlivearts and #AsYouSeeIt 2.
