Key Worker Mural
CAN YOU HELP ME GROW THIS PROJECT AND TAKE PART?
I am creating a mural of key workers! The idea behind this project is to celebrate key workers in all areas: Nurses, Care Workers, Doctors, Delivery Drivers, Pharmacists, Refuge Workers, Teachers, Transport Drivers etc.
The tiles will be put together to create a large scale art piece, currently 1x 1m but can get bigger! I would like to display the final painting somewhere in the community (please get in touch if you know a good place or are a local organisation)
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hi! I'm Lissie, I am an artist and designer. My work involves creating fine-art for weddings and events. During the COVID19 crisis I found myself out of my usual work. I signed up to be an emergency response care worker in Nottingham to do my bit during the tough times. I was inspired to paint my colleagues and all other workers as a tribute to their hard work and dedication. I want to try and paint as many portraits as possible to create a large scale mural and raise some money for charities.
Key workers are welcome to submit a photo to be part of the mural. Each person will take a 20 x 20 cm tile. To make sure I am able to use your photo please:
Take the photo head-on (image you are taking a passport photo) in your uniform and/or PPE.
Include your name and profession in your message, so I can write it on the back of your tile.
By sending me a photo you agree to be part of a public art piece. I will own to rights to the artwork.
50% of funds raise will go towards Age UK and NHS Charities Together. The other 50% will go towards painting materials so that I can keep the project going and paint as many key workers as possible! Each tile takes £4 in materials to produce.
50 out of 50
£681 out of £500
Once completed I will be able to sell prints! For each print I will make a 50% donation to COVID19 support charity.
Charities I have chosen are: Age UK (to support the elderly hit by the crisis), NHS Charities (For our NHS Workers)
