Gallery harvests souls

Date 26 Oct 2006

The University of Sunderland wants your soul this Halloween, all in the name of art. The university’s Reg Vardy Gallery is asking people to send in drawings of their souls.

The Soul project invites individuals from all over the world to draw what they believe or imagine their soul to look like. Drawings created by participants in the North East will be used in Shine, Sunderland’s Winter Festival supported by Culture 10. Many of the drawings created by North Easterners will be projected in the city centre as part of the festival in December 2006.

The gallery hopes that the drawings will serve as a testament to cultural vitality and creativity, and will select five hundred drawings for inclusion in a publication to be distributed worldwide. The drawings will be exhibited in New York, Africa, Bangladesh, Japan and the UK.

If you would like to submit your soul drawing you must send a black and white pencil drawing on white A4 paper. For an information pack contact Natalie Frost, 0191 5152128, the Reg Vardy Gallery, Ashburne House, Ryhope Road, Sunderland, SR2 7EF.

Closing date for entries is next Tuesday, October 31. For more information go to or
