April 10th - June 10th, 2020
As the number of people on lockdown across to globe climbs. Artists, like the rest of us, are faced with the blunt existential question. What do I do to survive? Everyone thinks they have the right answer...
"Jeunes Artistes d'Avenir" is an organisation promoting African Art around the world. Today, in this time of crisis, they decided to bring the art to your doors through an online exhibition named "Confinement 2.0"
"Confinement 2.0" allows african artists to take a stand on the crisis we are going through at the moment.
"Jeunes Artistes d'Avenir" invited the painter and outsideleft left arts writer, Guilaine Arts, to contribute her work to the project. Guilaine says "there are so many great artists involved, it's a privilege to be part of this. The exhibition is a chance to give to the artists the support and the recognition that they deserve."
The event continues until June 20th.

We do know the Ancient Champion is releasing a new single each month of 2019. Instrumental music characterised as easy listening for difficult times. And a collection of extremely short stories, Six Stories About Motoring Nowhere as part of the SideCartel's Sextet series. More info at AncientChampion.com

Outsideleft exists on a precarious no budget budget. We are interested in hearing from deep and deeper pocket types willing to underwrite our cultural vulture activity. We're not so interested in plastering your product all over our stories, but something more subtle and dignified for all parties concerned. Contact us and let's talk. [HELP OUTSIDELEFT]
If Outsideleft had arms they would always be wide open and welcoming to new writers and new ideas. If you've got something to say, something a small dank corner of the world needs to know about, a poem to publish, a book review, a short story, if you love music or the arts or anything else, write something about it and send it along. Of course we don't have anything as conformist as a budget here. But we'd love to see what you can do. Write for Outsideleft, do. [SUBMISSIONS FORM HERE]
