Calling all artists

Southampton - Team Recruit
Secret Wars is happening right now, you just don’t know! Similar to Fight Club it thrives on word of mouth. Put simply, it’s a war between artists. The ultimate question however, is who will reign supreme? The only weapon they carry is the Edding pen they hold in their hand!

We’re on the hunt for artists to represent Southampton for team battles. This means any artist chosen could potentially be taken to Lisbon, Dublin, Malmo or New York to battle it out! We’re inviting ALL
artists, to attend and show what they’re capable of on white boards set up around the Soul Cellar.
Artists MUST register first by emailing their details to southampton@secretwars.co.uk.
We look forward to seeing you all there for a huge art jam as we get things started for SW series 3!

School Wars @ K2 Festival Southampton

K2's yearly festival saw the first Southamptn School wars project come to town. Despite the weather being dismal, the introduction of School Wars to kids between 6-16 was a huge success.

With the help of Captain Bukioe (The Undergrowth) kids were given an insight into the live art battle and how artists prepare for the live stage. Supported by edding and run in conjunction with the Soco music project, this workshop proved to be a success and the first of many.

If you know of any schools or teaching organizations that would be interested in hosting a school wars, please contact us on studio@secretwars.co.uk
