Paper Girl is a celebration of Art, Bicycles and the act of giving.
The ride part involves riding around our beautiful city and give away bundles of art to members of the public, for free.
First we need to collect some art from the people of Oxford so we're asking everyone to submit art work (the submission deadline is April 29th).
We exhibit everything we receive, and throw a big party on May 6th (the day before the ride). The morning of the ride we roll the art works into groups in preparation for distributing.
Last year Paper Girl Manchester gave away over 800 pieces of art in 212 rolls by bicycle, to random people on the streets of Manchester. This year Oxford is getting involved and running a Paper Girl ride too...
From drawings, doodles to photography and screen prints to painting, submit up to 10 pieces of work to be part of Papergirl Oxford.
Every artist will be featured in the exhibition at Oxford Cycle Workshop Training on Glanville Road. To submit work drop it in or post your it to Papergirl Oxford, Oxford Cycle Workshop Training Centre, Ashlar House, Glanville Road Oxford OX4 2DD
Work should be between A4 and A1 in size. Please write your name, url and Paper Girl Oxford on your submission.
By submitting work you are consenting to your work being exhibited by Paper Girl Oxford and given out free of charge to the public as part of the Cycle Oxford Festival 2011.
Deadline: 29th April 2011 (don't forget)
