Create & Inspire Constellation
São Paulo-based artist residency space, Casa Tomada, invited the Crossway Foundation to occupy their window between October 2014 and September 2015, as part of the A Casa Recebe programme, with a project developed by the Create & Inspire winners. A Casa Recebe is an annual programme where an organisation is invited to occupy the window space at Casa Tomada for one year. For more information, watch this video.
The finished vinyl is now on display and is the result of Create & Inspire 2014; a creative journey to Brazil that took place in September 2014 for 12 young artists from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. The artists worked together to create a constellation that links all the participants of the programme, both artists and accompanying team, connecting them in different ways.Each person represented in the constellation was given a number. This number links to another map which is featured on Casa Tomada's website; there you can find more information on each of the participants, as well as samples of their work as individuals that was created during their time in Brazil. The website will be updated with new information throughout the year.
