Refocus: Submissions

As all the city's educational establishments have remained open for learning over the last year our young artists have had to contend with making art in a more isolated way. To bring this work together, a small number of buildings, galleries and institutions have agreed to screen images and projections across our city. This work should reflect how artwork and learning was reset, exploring the creative challenges triggered by pandemic isolation.

As Portsmouth emerges from lockdown, we are looking for your images to be exhibited at Ports Fest 2nd-4th July. Whether this is a photographic image, painting or sketch, we welcome all 2D submissions to remember what made an impact on us over the last year and reflect on how we are moving forward today. 

We will also be showcasing original artwork from Kikaaya College School in Uganda who also went through lockdown. 

If you are interested in taking part in this project then get in touch

Please can you send any digital submissions of artwork to: closing date: 22nd June 2021
