About Mica Creative
Mica Creative ran "Visual Voices" art workshops in some of the most deprived parts of Britain, encouraging participants and budding artists to express themselves through any visual art medium. These pilot workshops were an incredible success with talented but isolated artists expressing a desire to be showcased in their regions and national institutions and mentored through artists’ networks. For some it was an opportunity to deal with childhood experiences that had haunted their adult lives, for others it was simply a platform for their art.
The winning and shortlisted artists’ exhibition will be showcased at Mica Gallery from July 30 – September 8, 2012, coinciding with the Olympic summer. Rather unusually and quite uniquely, Mica hopes to create a "Pop Up" exhibition along King’s Road and Sloane Square to showcase the submitted art works and foster a creative community spirit during the Olympics, thus bringing residents, artists, trade and businesses together into a creative community cycle for cross-cultural and business exchange. Mica is looking for businesses that would like to showcase art in their shop windows.
