'Unchain Our hearts' are looking to commission between 5-40 blown glass hearts, we would like the artists to produce the works in their own style, at a minimum of 40cm in diameter/ height.


The glass hearts will be displayed weighted by heavy chains, with a central 3d printed replica heart inside that will work with light & audio. We have 2 festival locations confirmed in England & Scotland, & look for the project to organically grow. 


The project is about connection, collaborating, communication & unity through diversity. We are living in turbulent social, political, economic times & I feel compelled to bring artists together to bring social change or provocation through Art. 


We will commission each heart & are looking for participants globally, but will start with the much closer to home issue we are all trying to deal with.


Many Thanks for your time & we look forward to hearing from you.Please get in touch for further detail, each commission will be cost at the artists specification upon dimension/ time developing/ travel/ materials. 


At the 'heart' of the project is celebrating individuality yet connecting in unity. We want diversity, we want your own stamp on your work. 


We are in talks to exhibit in central Edinburgh & as part of Hull's city of culture, tbc.
