Creative Postcard Exchange UK wide

We are so excited to be reaching out to as many as possible, so we can help people make connections creatively from our Hebridean island communities to other communities all over the UK!

We will record each of the artworks digitally so that they may be part of a fantastic exhibition at the end of the project.We will also share all the lovely artwork on social media as the project progresses.

Hooray! You should also have received your very own original art postcard from another participant in the Hebrides and a blank one for you to complete and return using the prepaid envelope!

Step 2 What happens next…
Feel free to add a message to your recipient.Perhaps you could tell your them a little about your artwork or what inspired you, maybe even a little about life where you are?[Please keep your personal information safe by only using either your first name or initials and only if you wish to do so.

Step 4 Say Hello!
