I will organise a venue in Manchester. Please spread this to other cities. If you can help in any other way such as promoting the art sale then please get in touch.

Papergirl Manchester featured on Design Week’s blog. By Laura Snoad.

“Last summer, we caught up with the organisers behind Papergirl Manchester, a philanthropic cyclist and designer mash-up that involved distributing rolled bundles of artwork to unsuspecting pedestrians.
 
At the time we were inspired by the generosity of the project and the range of artwork - some bike-inspired, others not - that was given out for free.
 
Papergirl Manchester organiser Janice Stainton, an account manager at Judge Gil, says, ‘For the recipient it’s a gift of free art. It’s more of an emotional thing for the artists, rather than just a chance for self-promotion.’
And it looks like we weren’t the only ones on which the project made an impression. An appetite for the project has spread across the UK and this year five new cities - Leeds, Bristol, Glasgow Newcastle and Oxford - will host similar Papergirl events.
Stainton says, ‘In 2010 we showcased 83 artists and distributed over 800 pieces of work. This year we hope to get more designers, illustrators and photographers involved in the art of giving art.’
So if you want to share your work with lucky members of the public or fancy yourself as a paper girl or boy, get in touch.”

Papergirl returns to Manchester distributing rolls of art by bicycle to passers-by. Each roll will consist of posters, prints and originals, uniquely wrapped together to create a one-off combination of works. Everyone can participate by submitting pieces from screen-prints to illustration and photography to design. Founded in Berlin by Aisha Ronniger, Papergirl started as a reaction to the discussion in the media about the tightening of graffiti laws to include paste ups. The art isn’t sold; instead it is gifted to the receiver. The project is analogue, non-commercial and impulsive; bringing art to the public in a different way from normal. All work will feature in an exhibition before distribution. To submit upto 10 pieces of work or multiple copies. send an email with your name, city and a link to your website to papergirlmanchester@gmail.com then post your work to Papergirl Manchester, 7 Ophthalmic Works, 2 Naples Street, Manchester, UK, M4 4DB.

Additional information
• Papergirl does not print submissions, all work is distributed in the format it is submitted.
• There are no guidelines as to format, subject matter or quantity, so originals, prints, photos, copies etc. come together. Each roll contains several different works, meaning that each one holds a unique combination of works.
• The art rolls cannot be sold and they are not delivered to subscribers.
• Giving the work out by bike means that there is no time for any stereotypes when choosing recipients of the pieces. You have to react fast and spontaneously. Chance plays its part.
