Droitwich Arts Network (DAN) invites member artists to participate in the Mail Art Exhibition that will be part of 2015  Salt Festival programme (12 – 13 September). Similarly, Les Amis des Arts de Voiron invites DAN members to respond in like manner. The aim of the project is to connect artists from Droitwich Spa with fellow artists from twin town. Feel free to introduce yourself through your artistic expression. We are looking forward to seeing your works.

“Mail art (also known as Postal art and Correspondence art) is a populist artistic movement centered on sending small scale works through the postal service. It initially developed out of the Fluxus movement in the 1950s and 60s, though it has since developed into a global movement that continues to the present.” (Wikipedia)
