We’re having a new call for entries starting this weekend. Very simple, but we’ll get to the bottom of what art means to us.
Our questions to inspire you:
What gets your creativity going?
What motivates you to make art?
In which situation do you feel a creative flow?
Take a picture, write a sentence, write a short musical composition or just arrange some sounds.
- Take a picture of your favourite place, musical instrument, art implement, or piece of dance attire, something that inspires you to get going and be creative. Upload it to our Tumblr community site.
- Give us a more abstract, audio answer. Use your own sounds or download some open sounds from our SoundCloud, rework them, and submit them to our SoundCloud Group. Motto: This is me as an artist.
- Write one to three sentences telling us what motivates you to write, perform, act, dance, compose, take pictures, paint, draw or film.
Have a look at Barbara’s latest blog post “Thoughts on Silence and Being an Artist” for inspiration.

what gets your creativity going?

the black white filled pages after pages with blankness
outside, tonight. for a smoke, looking at the skybright starfill,
the questionmark transfigured into a straight dot
the quintessence is _
What gets my creativity going?
I love to make connections, unexpected combinations spark my creative flow.
Images & sound, collage, all mediums, anything goes. The best situation is when a connection happens spontaneously, a subtle transition in music, film, or unusual mixtures of mediums.
The creative work of other people always opens up my creative flow, I love to discover new work!
Thank you to both of you, Laura and Beat, I can very much relate to what you are saying. What triggers my creativity is curiosity, the wish to explore and share.
