POST is a text-based platform, hosting the words, notes and reflections of artists and members of the creative community, to form a collaborative narrative.

The feed started on the 19th April 2020, titled 'Notes from lockdown'. With the subsequent theme 'A new canon', our narrative continues to grow. 46 creatives have contributed 192 posts to date.

Each month, the POST platform refreshes and hosts a different live feed, the themes of which are given as a loose seed for thought, and are open to your interpretation. 

'No is okay' is the current live feed.

No is okay

Throughout the new canon we are being asked how we’re dealing, coping, existing. It has been a time for self existence and reflection. What happens when the answer to: "Are you ok?" is simply, no?

I’m not okay; here’s why…

The current theme of POST has been set by guest curator Christian Watts. Christian is an experimental Designer from Liverpool, UK and currently resides in Berlin. They enjoy re-evaluating the norm and questioning why we design. www.chrstnjfw.design.

POST is curated by Lucy Sharpe (@lucy_h_sharpe). To keep the platform evolving, thoughts and feedback on the project are always welcome. POST is a web platform primarily. Whilst we don’t have a social media profile, tag us on #postproject so we can stay connected.
