Artist Brief for The Warring Arts
– Scheduled to take place October, November, December 2019
Background & Context
Our mission is to inspire and involve people in community arts, investing in and nurturing creativity. The project will focus on the entertainment, arts and culture that was around at the time of First World War and directly afterwards and will explore the stories of individuals and communities in North Powys and what entertainment was on and used to celebrate the armistice. We will also explore existing accounts and get a broader picture of the arts and culture of the time across the UK and the World. We will look at objects, photographs, documents, books, newspapers, songs, paintings, performance styles and from the time, both existing and from people’s personal collections.
The First World War and the period afterwards was a time of great social upheaval. The project aims to create an understanding of the impact of the war on arts and culture and people’s attitudes and look at how this was shaped through cartoons, songs, films, dance styles etc. and how they were used not only as morale boosters but also as a way to recruit young men. At the time the role of women was also changing and censorship was in place. The wars toll on people’s wellbeing was reflected in the changes to painting, with the birth of abstract and expressionist art, jazz became popular and sporting events rose in their perceived entertainment value, literature developed a short and rapid style and film became popular entertainment.
The project is funded by the Arts Council of Wales and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Project Aim: The Warring Arts aims to increase participants understanding of the First World War and to engage those who may not have before in their local heritage
