What’s happening this year?
By choosing an object associated with someone or something we love, we can reconnect.
Creative expression can lead to action, for example on climate change, or finding a fresh understanding of ourselves and others.
Your new exObject contributions will be stitched together as 2023 rolls on.

Create your own exObject
Riff on a similar object to a watch, or being watched, or walking in your sleep. Or choose a new object, any object, that reminds you of someone or something important, for example global warming.
1. Write a memory mixed with imaginative writing (50 – 300 words)
2. Or record a voice file up to 3 minutes long
– an image, which doesn’t have to be the object, just one associated with your piece
– a caption for your image (1 – 30 words)
– Alt text describing what your object looks like (max 50 words)
Email your writing or recording, your image, caption and Alt text to us at: exObjects2022 @ gmail.com
By sharing our perspectives we aim to help others reconnect to the people and places we continue to love.
