"Let Me Introduce Myself" Postcard Swap


From the International Youth Arts Festival 2012:

The International Youth Arts Festival invites you and anyone between the ages of 5 and 26 years to take part in this year's international postcard swap: "Let Me Introduce Myself".

Take a blank postcard or a piece of plain card approximately 11 cm x 15 cm and be creative with any material you can think of: oil paint, ink, dried pasta, buttons, or pictures, and introduce yourself to the world. You may also like to add some writing to your piece. Think about what represents you.

Your artwork will be exhibited during this year’s International Youth Arts Festival, Kingston-upon-Thames June 29 - July 6, 2012 and also online at www.schoolswaps.net.

After the exhibition you will receive a different postcard back (or a selection of cards if you send us more than one) from somewhere else around the world.

This project is a great opportunity to share something about yourself, your home, surroundings, personality and emotions with thousands of other young people. This is also a fantastic school or group project where students can work together.

For all the details and the postcards from last year's project go to schoolswaps.net.

Stamp and send the postcard to:

IYAF c/o Arts Office
Guildhall 2
Kingston upon Thames
United Kingdom

Postcards must be received by July 2.
