Can you help keep Firstsite fantastic, fun and free?

The impact of shutting Firstsite has been huge for us and the communities we work with, which is why we are reaching out to you to help us.

Whatever you can give today can help us continue our work, collaborate with more communities and find creative solutions to the world we find in front of us.

This might be Art – Is it though? 7th April 2020


Art is where the home is

Okay. Challenge accepted Firstsite. I’m going to try and complete as many activities from your first “Art is where the home is” issue. And I’m going to challenge my friends to do this as well. I’d love to start a small art wave. Should I draw myself surfing? Can I pitch this for the next issue?

See, I’m rambling. There you go. I never thought I could make art so I wrote about it and still do. You gave me the opportunity to allow myself to do something out of my comfort zone in a time when the only thing I need is comfort. So… here’s my art.

I’d love to hear your thoughts. Or ramblings.
