A proposal for members exhibition.
Hoping to link membership together in a common purpose.
Sparked by an interest in how even the smallest of changes can drastically affect the whole.
Based around the Chinese Whispers idea.
Butterfly wings on one continent affect weather systems half a world away.
Where will an image end up when passed through a number of hands, each injecting their own slant or interpretation?
Each artist/member has their own way of looking at things, their own individual style, way of working, choice of medium.
ROAR are looking to celebrate and highlight this.
We propose to furnish one member with an image and invite them to make a piece of work in reaction to it. They should then return the original piece to ROAR at Westgate and forward their own on to the next member in line who will repeat the process. Names will be drawn from a hat to give the order of artists and each supplied with the next in line to pass their work onto. All members are relatively local so that the reaction works are not even dictated by what will fit into a cardboard tube and pop in the post, there are ways around any logistical problems that may arise.
For more information and details contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
All ROAR members will soon be invited to have a 10 min promotional video made by Sheffield Hallam University students. These can then be used as promotional material for yourselves and the plan is to combined 3 at a time into several 30min tv programmes for SLTV. Watch this space for details.

3, When you place a sculpture take a photo of it and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org so that everyone can have a record of all the sculptures.
4, Don’t place anything that you don’t want to give away.
Here are some images from the week.
