Some flash fiction for the @64M_Artists & @Synergy_Theatre challenge #CreateToConnect #flashfiction #amwriting #64MillionArtists #theatre 1/5 Create to Connect - Day 16! Today’s challenge is from the Synergy Theatre Project, who work across theatre and the criminal justice system towards the rehabilitation and resettlement of prisoners, ex-prisoners and young people at risk of offending. Can you write a short conversation between two people who have been in the same space together for a long time? Perhaps the people are experiencing self-isolation together, or they might know each other from prison. Perhaps they are on a voyage into space, their car has broken down or they have got lost. What do we learn from their conversation? How does their situation impact their relationship, or what they might be saying?

Take the time to find a moment of active stillness. Notice what disturbs you and brings your moment of stillness to an end. Then, draw a head in profile. Draw a shape in the middle of the head, where the brain might be. It can be any shape that you like. Break that shape up into sections, some bigger and some smaller. Fill these sections with whatever is taking up your brain space right now. Your biggest section might be used for your biggest thoughts, whilst smaller sections could be filled with passing whims or feelings. #CreateToConnect #64MillionArtists #MakingYourMindUp Create to Connect - Day 14!

More a feathered face as it turned out - sock/banana toucan says hello #createtoconnect #64millionartists #gatesheadartdiamonds Art prompt “The Little Things Life” which in my short-term memory became “It’s the Little Things.” This little carrot is the promise of good things ahead. It was placed in a little water in a little glass on a quarantined Passover. It’s rooted and sprouting and ready to plant and produce more little things in life. #ifdrawaweek #ifdrawaweek224 #thetogetherchallenge (prompt was fruit but veggies are close) #vegetableart #iloveveggies #orangeart #orangeandgreen #greenandorange #nashvilleartist #pigmapens #handdrawntype #handlettered #markerartist #brushpens #patterndesigner #surelysimpleart #asketchaday #illustratie #artistsonig #womenwhodraw #1340art #64millionartists #scribbleart #illustratie #asketchaday #adrawingaday #sketchingdaily #sketchingtime #greetingcarddesign MOOD. #CreateToConnect day 13: Create an animal face. @64millionartists @gatesheadartdiamonds He likes to move it move it @gatesheadartdiamonds #createtoconnect #64millionartists #moveitmoveit Today's challenge is from @64millionartists and @gatesheadartdiamonds.

I made a mask today. This - aargh! - involved sewing (by hand!) and anyone who knows me knows that the reason I did German at secondary school was purely so I could avoid having to make a skirt in my second year. Anyway. The best part of 3 hours (!) and *much* swearing later, the mask was made. But, sewing aside, it got me thinking - we are all heroes in our own way and more often than not, it is the things we hide yet decide to face up to every day that make us so. #createtoconnect #64millionartists #contactmcr ❤️ love this response to today’s hidden heroes challenge - cheers to #internationalnursesday! #createtoconnect #64millionartists Posted @withregram • @agneseryefield She is an operating room nurse. She is attentive, compassionate to the patient's needs. She must be empathetic. She must overcome fear and must be a hero. Hugs and kisses on International Nurses Day! #SuperSintija ❤ Create to Connect - Day 12! Take notice of the hidden histories and heroes around you. Who are the people around you who you think should be celebrated - for what they are doing now, or for something they did in the past? Choose someone from your community, your family or from history...and then celebrate them! Tell their story to someone else you know, write them a poem, draw their picture or throw them a (virtual) party. Let's #CreateToConnect #64millionartists Today’s challenge from @adamsincerely @contactmcr is to celebrate your heroes. Love this sketch of #EdithNew, a suffragette who lived locally to @ohsoboho_pearls! Posted @withregram • @ohsoboho_pearls Hidden Heroes Day 12 of the challenges I chose Edith New, a suffragette whos place of birth is in my neighbourhood. I pass by the blue plaque marking her former home most days. It's even a Poke Stop in Pokemon Go! I did a quick sketch of a photo I found online of her. I applaud these women who paved the way for women's rights. Its so easy to forget sometimes what these ladies had to endure. A local hidden hero who I kept meaning to learn about since moving here 3 years ago and thanks to today's challenge I finally did. ​Edith Bessie New (17 March 1877 – 2 January 1951) was an English suffragette. She was one of the first two suffragettes to use vandalism as a tactic. "Edith New, a school teacher born in Swindon, who became an activist for the WSPU. Edith chained herself to the railings at 10 Downing Street in Jan 1908, the first time that tactic had been employed by a suffragette. She resigned from teaching and devoted herself full time to the cause, ending up imprisoned and on hunger strike for her beliefs. It is perhaps no surprise that Edith came from Swindon as this town held important meetings about women’s suffrage at the Mechanics’ Institute in March 1875 and again in 1882, featuring speakers from the Bristol Society." #createtoconnect #64millionartists #hiddenheroes #EdithNew #womenssuffrage #Swindon #oldtownswindon #swindonhistory #visit_swindon #Wiltshire One of the heroes that came up in today’s zoom meet up was the artist @marktitchner, who is reminding us that these days will pass, too. Love these posters that have been put up around London! #createtoconnect #64millionartists #marktitchner #pleasebelievethesedayswillpass
