Calling All HIV+ Artists!
      #233123 - 10/29/07 07:24 PM

Painters, sculptors, dancers, musicians, poets, storytellers, performance artists, fire twirlers, graffiti artists, graphic artists, ALL creative geniuses! If you are HIV+ or your work has been profoundly affected by HIV/AIDS, we want YOU!

Tobin Del Cuore, up and coming filmmaker, and Sue Saltmarsh of Test Positive Aware Network, are collaborating to produce “Infectious Art,” a documentary about the effect of HIV/AIDS on creativity and the lives of artists of all kinds. Though money is tight, we hope to travel around the country interviewing artists and showcasing their work.

If you are interested in appearing in “Infectious Art,” please send a letter/resume, along with an example of your work in photo, video tape, DVD, audio tape, descriptive narrative or written form to Sue Saltmarsh
c/o TPA Network
5537 N Broadway
Chicago, IL 60640
We’ll be accepting submissions through January, 2008. Unfortunately, we can’t pay you for your participation, but we hope the film will be shown in many different venues, providing you and your work with great publicity.

If you aren’t an artist or don’t want to participate, but would like to support the project financially, we’ll be grateful and glad to put your name in the credits! Send checks made out to
Sue Saltmarsh to her at the same address.

If you’d like to know more, contact Sue at makahwinan@gmail.com

I'm not sure what you mean by HIV profoundly affecting my art, but it's certainly given me more time to focus on it. Being medically retired, my art is how I fill my days.

I hope that is not the case. We need to keep that stress level down. D
