Call for Postcard Entries by October 1, 2010

It’s time to send in your entries in the 2nd annual “Look Closer: See Me For Who I Am” postcard project at Northern Lakes CMH!

The idea is simple – communicate something to someone on a postcard. Make it fun, visual, verbal, creative, artistic, unpredictable. Then send it to us through the mail – snail mail, stamps and all.
We receive it and post it in this blog. We will also hang it on the wall at our Art of Recovery: The Human Journey Show at the InsideOut Gallery in Traverse City. We may share it in other ways too.
Each piece you enter (enter as many times as you like) should communicate something about you. It can be funny or serious. You can tell a story, make a statement, express your feelings, thoughts, hopes, and dreams. Use collage, rubber stamps, painting, photography, drawing, or writing. Use your imagination!

Submissions are due by October 1, 2010. To learn more click here: Look Closer Call For Submissions Information.

Last year, over 100 submissions were received from throughout Northern Michigan and from as far away as San Juan, Puerto Rico and Vienna, Austria. You may view the submissions at our Virtual Recovery Center Postcard Gallery. Enjoy!

This project is funded through a federal block grant through the Michigan Department of Community Health.
