Amplifying exposure to a cause through creativity

Performance at Zealous X - 2016

The last 5 years have brought about large societal changes which have forced many of us to reshape the ways we live. And even though we have never been so connected to one another, we have also never been so lonely.

We hope that by coming together and sharing our work we can feel less isolated, share our collective thoughts, and ultimately capture the feeling of a Nation in a unique digital exhibition.

Sharing how we perceive the world builds empathy and allows us to collectively reshape our future

Guy Armitage
Founder (Zealous)


Everyone should have access to creativity

For this competition, we have chosen to raise funds for Create.

Create runs creative arts workshops with the UK’s most disadvantaged and vulnerable people, raising their aspirations, building self-esteem, reducing isolation and enhancing wellbeing.

You’ll be able to choose to donate as you apply (strictly optional).
