Hello friends! Absurd Little Things is looking for puppet artists and enthusiasts to create works and engage in artistic exchanges through the production of small performance videos.
"Absurd Little Things" is an open platform to incubate ideas and works, and hold space for dialogues about creative processes. In the long term, we wish to build a community that can exchange knowledge and inspire creativity amongst collaborators.
We believe that art making can start from capturing inspiration from the little moments of inspirations in life, or documenting bursts of crazy/absurd/spontaneous ideas that will eventually grow into something beautiful in time. Creating art could also be a communal activity on this platform where casual conversations can help us connect with collaborators. Art-making is an ongoing experiment, examination, and communication.
If you feel the same way, please join us!

What will I experience?
This is a monthly challenge where prompts are given for artists to respond (with a video).
We may also hold occasional concept sharing and skills support sessions based on everyone's work.
What are the requirements for the video submission?
1. Landscape orientation
2. Suggested length of video: Anything less than 3mins (If you have a longer performance, feel free to talk to us. We don't have a minimum requirement for length, if you want to submit a 10 secs video, feel free to!)
3. Submit a puppetry performance (You can define what puppetry is)
If I want to participate, do I have to submit my work every month?
The platform is conceptualised to challenge artists to create regularly so that we can start to notice things around us.
The first round of this project will be 6 months long. We will be publishing our prompts every month. We wish that you can cling on with us in this journey. Remember, this is a platform for play and experimentation to happen, we welcome works or ideas that may not seem "complete", let's look forward to bouncing off creativity!
What will I get?
Community. Sharing. Conversations. Inspiration. Courage. Passion :)
