Blok Collective on behalf of Kolab, Overground and Verbal Remedies.
A Peterborough first, as we bring live illustration battles to key events this summer.
Two or more artists/illustrators have 90 minutes to complete their best sketch on a 6ftx6ft board, using only black pens. No reference material or sketchbooks are allowed. The event is competitive, the winner decided by both event host and audience.
To bring visual artists into the live event setting, creating more visibility for the art form.
To attract and develop new artistic skills
Connect artists with diverse audience
To develop Peterborough’s audiences.
It will also be loads of fun to be involved with and to watch!
How it will work;
This application will enable us to pilot the project at 3 different events this summer. It will pay for the initial outlay of materials, such as boards, paint and pens etc.
The first 3 performances will be largely non competitive to establish the concept this season. Once developed, ‘Outline’ will become a seasonal competitive event with a series of battles to establish a winning team at a large finale event such as Overground.
Each performance of Outline will plug into existing music, poetry/spoken word events and festivals.
Other costs for the project will be met by the individual events that host each performance, providing everything else from venue to promotion.
