Read or listen to the prompt and then set a 10 minute timer.
You can write, draw, sketch, paint, make music or choreograph – anything and everything that pops into your head from the prompt for those ten minutes.
When the timer goes off, do NOT edit whatever you created, just send it to us right away!
You can write your response directly in the response box on the website
OR take a picture, video, or recording of your piece and attach it as a file.
Look out for the next prompt in the series!
We will take your responses and work with artists to create a whole new piece! Look out for a video of it when it’s ready.
And please share ART APART, TOGETHER with your friends, family, and other artists–everyone is encouraged to participate.
We might be apart, but we can still make art together.
In The World
By: Brigid Lowry
in the strange early morning half light we sit
in the cloudiness of our questioning we sit
in our madness and our clarity we sit
in the midst of too much to do we sit
in the warm arms of our shared sorrow we sit
in community and in loneliness we sit
in sweet exhaustion we sit
in the blazing energy of being alive we sit
here with the singing crickets
here with each electric birdsong
here with the rippling of breezes and the dry grasses
here with the cobwebs and the clouds
and the dusty road upon us
us in the sound and the sound in us
us in the world and the world in us
