In celebration of becoming a charity – and embracing lockdown – Mainspring Arts is launching Two Metres ApART, a digital museum showcasing the best of neurodivergent art.
Every week for 12 weeks they’ll upload a new exhibit. If you’re a neurodivergent poet, writer, visual artist, comedian, musician, performance artist or any other type of neurodivergent artist/creative, then please submit your work!
Your work can take the form of text, images, video or audio (basically anything we can upload onto the website). The brief is wide open – there’s no set theme, and your work can be any length/size (within reason!) The only rule is that the piece needs to be something you could have ready within one week.
It’s OK if your work doesn’t usually take digital form. Mainspring are keen to see inventive ways of presenting work digitally, whether it’s a video showcase, audio recording, photography or anything else you can think of.
You can either submit work you’ve already completed or propose a new piece of work. There are rolling weekly deadlines: each Friday for 12 weeks, starting on Fri 3 Apr.
Each featured artist will receive a fee of £100 and your work will be shared far and wide.
How to Apply
If you’d like to submit an existing work, please email the proposed work to us along with a short paragraph about you and your work.
If you’d like to propose a new piece, send in a written/video proposal outlining your idea (up to 200 words/2 minutes), along with a short paragraph about you and your work. You can also send examples/links to previous work if you’d like to.
Please email all applications to [email protected] with the subject line ‘Two Metres ApART proposal’. You can also always email with questions or clarifications.
