As part of her global visual art project, #UNBOUND, Rachel Gadsden asked me to submit a drawing of who I was and a photo of me being creative.
The project ‘aims to explore the complex and often painful emotions that individuals and communities endure and overcome when embarking upon cultural and personal life changes. UNBOUND tests whether the challenges and anxieties experienced in embracing unfamiliar ideas can be explored through creative methods, allowing communities to move towards different ways of seeing and doing.’
It does this by encouraging people from all walks of life to share a self-portrait on social media with a little back story. It’s a pretty neat way of re-evaluating where you are in your life – whatever your views of your artistic skills – and I see no harm in anyone having a go.
