A few weeks agoTalking Passions teamed up with Khali Ackford Photography to tackle a competition entry for the new Paper:Arts creative space, Redbrick House.
The brief was simple, create a piece of art based around the inspiring quote;
'Choose a job that you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life' by Steve Jobs.
As this quote and what is symbolises is so close to the message we're trying to spread with Talking Passions we decided to try and capture some powerful images of some of the amazing individuals we have featured over the last few months in their working environments, and get some quotes of our own from each person. We wanted to allow the viewer to connect on a personal level with each person, finding out who they are and what they are about. It worked. We ended up with a set of fantastic images and some genuinely beautiful quotes.
As the deadline for the competition was pushed back we were invited instead to exhibit our work in the new studio space and jumped at the chance, only hitch is we need to fund it.
That's where you come in! : )
This is a community project, and a non-profit exhibition. We are not selling the pieces or prints.
We have set a goal of £1000 for two reasons:
A. To cover printing costs.
B. To pay for future exhibitions. We feel that this is an organic project, one which will grow as Talking Passions grows. We want to push forward, feature more amazing creatives and put on future exhibitions in spaces such as Hamilton House or The Island.
We are showcasing some of the incredible talent in the Bristol community, from singer/songwriters to illustrators and clothing designers, and are positive that seeing some of the amazing individuals in your area will inspire and enrich your creative side and give you an appreciation for all their hard work and determination.
Please support us to put on this exhibition.
