A group of seven diverse artists are making bold plans to embark on an adventure to Egypt for a creative project in early spring of 2014.
Dubbed What Rhymes with Egypt, the project consists of Bend local creatives MOWO, Kaycee Anseth, Kristina Cyr, Euijin and Nathan Gray of theBedouins.org, as well as Tunisian artist VAJO and Moey Zakaria of Jordan. They are actively formulating a trip to Cairo and Alexandria to engage the creative community and ‘put down on paper’ their responses to the current cultural state of Egypt.
The experiences will be culminated in the form of an art book of rhymes in three parts: Book one is a photographic conversation between culture and tradition. Book two is a visual and verbal compilation of the collective experience in Egypt. Book Three will illustrate with collage traditional Egyptian children’s rhymes.
A Kickstarter “all or nothing” campaign was launched to raise funds for the project and will run thru December.
Creative rewards from the artists will be available to the generous funders.
PUSH Tunisia and What Rhymes With Egypt? will be at the Tin Pan Theater on December 19 at 6pm.
