Papergirl Cluj-Napoca has started!

Cluj-Napoca has opened arms for Papergirl! We started collecting artworks at 3 main locations in Cluj-Napoca and we are very happy to collaborate with such open-minded people!
TIFF has an eye for interesting cultural projects and has spotted Papergirl right on time. We will be collecting works at Casa Tiff, the main cultural point at the moment in the city and hoping for a brilliant exhibition to follow. L'Atelier Cafe is gathering for us as well and we are looking forward to interesting workshop there, a cafe made exclusively out of recicled carton and used wooden doors. Fabrica De Pensule (The Paintbrush Factory) is supporting us with a collecting point as well!

We are excited to be part of the Papergirl network and we hope to make a good start!

Donnerstag, 19. Juli 2012

Papergirl Calgary is Gearing up! only 11 days left for submissions!

Time is upon us, we are soooooo looking forward to the exhibition and giftervention, only 11 days left for submissions! We have a snappy calendar of events for all the fun stuff we are going to be doing, workshops, crafting bike bling, exhibiting, printing, gifting, it's gonna be amazing!

Come and join the fun if you are in Calgary this August! We would love to see you!

What's that you say? Giftervention?


An Art intervention that involves Gifting an anonymous stranger with a piece of art.

The action of gifterventing has been performed over many years, but it really only came into its own when the Art Event Papergirl Berlin started random gifterventions, taking art out of the galleries and into the streets. (2005)

Say it in a sentence: 
I can't wait till tomorrow, the giftervention at the park is going to be so damn amazing!
This term is now officially in the Urban Dictionary, my 'giftervention' back to Papergirl Berlin for starting this Kick-Ass project! Thanks  This definition is for you Aisha Ronniger!

Join us for our first Papergirl Vancouver workshop hosted by Jenna Herbut of Make it Productions. In the true nature of Papergirl's philosophy, the Art of Giving Art, Jenna has graciously donated her time to not only help artists learn more about getting their work out there into the world, but to also help us raise some money so we can continue to put on Papergirl next year!

    Jenna is going to teach you some basic concepts and techniques that will help you get your art and your name out there. It is going to be fun and way easier than you have ever imagined.

papergirl trier needs a little help

Dear papergirl friends from all over the world!
The first paper girl “Open Call” now ends on 30 June.
Unfortunately, the
artists in the oldest city in germany, are a little shy and very strange and so there have not yet received enough works to make a nice distribute-tour ;-(

one or the other artists of you want
to help a lame dog over a stile ;-) I would definitely be very very grateful!!! Paper Girl Trier is organized so far only by me and alone it´s often not easy - a lot of hurdles must be overcome - but in future things will get better and better and better and better and better ;-)

would be nice, if other papergirls (all over the world) informate about our open call in trier on there website or facebook or what ever…

If you would like to transmit/send some work to Papergirl Trier – this is the destination:

Mario Schmidt
Bahnhofstraße 34
54317 Kasel

i´m happy about new friends – so please chek my facebook ;-)
thank you thank you thank you ;-)
