Inspired by the desire to see Raleigh, NC inspired and experience Creative Revival, myself and Jane Cheek have been participating and working together to bring the Free Art Friday movement to Raleigh, NC and would like to invite you to join us!
What is Free Art Friday?
Free Art Friday is a global art movement bringing free art to streets, parks, alleys, and the homes of those who find it.
What is the purpose of Free Art Friday?
Free Art Friday is designed to be a creative exercise that frees the artist to create with out pressure, and puts art and joy in the world at the same time.
Who can participate?
The movement is open to all creative hearts and artists in the greater RDU area; emerging, and established; visual, performance, musical, and literary.
How do I participate?
Each week you can work solo or collaborate on a piece of art. Then hang it up somewhere in the Triangle, leave it to be found, and announce the location on your social media. Participating artists can tag their posts with #freeartfridayrdu and #CreativeRevival. Contact me to have your links added to this page.
How often do I have to participate to be a part of Free Art Friday?
When ever you want! There is no expectation to participate every week. Nobody will be keeping tabs on you. Participate when you want!
What do I need to create for Free Art Friday?
What ever you want! Sing, dance, paint, sculpt, sew, knit, craft, build, write a poem… just create! There are no rules or expectations. This is just one way to spread joy to the world through art.
How can I find free art on Free Art Friday?
Search the #freeartfridayrdu hashtag on social media to participate in the movement as an artist, or art lover.
How did Free Art Friday begin?
British street artist, My Dog Sighs, started the movement back before social media was even a thing. Remember those days?
