We’re running a Kickstart Readiness programme for Emerging Creatives and they have a story to share! The group are called RICE and are setting up a virtual art exhibition for all young people to display their work, here’s their message:

Hey! We’re RICE.

We are an art collective who wants to give young creatives within the south west a platform. We are doing this because we think all young people should have the opportunity to showcase their artwork to the world. We want to share your talent and vision.

We will be hosting a virtual exhibition called ‘Art? Sure!’ Along with showing both your artwork and our own. We will be including a talking heads video and a Zine to show what RICE is really about and demonstrate our individual creative flair.

The reason having you involved is so important to us is because we want to help young people realise that all art is not just valid, but also brilliant. We want to give young emerging artists the opportunity to get their work seen in a way that they are happy with. 

RICE is made up of an array of individuals from all sorts of backgrounds; we have not always been able to show our work or our abilities, which is why we are so passionate about giving that opportunity to others like us.

That is why we need you to send us your artwork so we can get it out there for everyone to see!
