Havana Club, the authentic Cuban Rum and cross arts centre Rich Mix are collaborating to present the Havana Club Wall Project. The Project is an art competition that will allow emerging talents to gain exposure in one of East London’s cultural hotspots. The twelve-month project includes three commissions launched by three live events, hosted in conjunction with the start of Rich Mix’s new seasons.
The Havana Club Wall Project is a celebration of the unique spirit of the Cuban city of Havana. It will embody the unique and inspiring attitude that reflects the true values of the Cuban capital - humanity, spontaneity and creativity - all of which are synonymous with authentic Cuban rum.
Artist Remi/Rough is launching the Havana Club Wall Project with his interpretation and vision of the values that make Havana so unique. The celebrated urban artist has been specially commissioned to design and paint an interior wall that runs the entire length of the Rich Mix events space. The Wall Project is then open as a competition to encourage amateur or professional artists to submit their interpretation of the true values of Havana. Two winners will then launch the following seasons with their designs on Saturday May 7th and Friday 2nd September.
Entries are submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, a selection will be posted on the Havana Club UK and Rich Mix facebook page to invite public feedback and final judging will be made by a panel led by Remi/Rough.
Entries must be submitted by:
March 7th - with the winning wall design on show from May to July 2011 / OR /
July 2nd - with the winning wall design on show from July to September 2011
