Welcome to the forty-seventh Crowdfunding Creative Jam! This session will run Saturday, January 16-Sunday, January 17. The theme is "Art and Artisans." Visit the Creative Jam over on LiveJournal.

Crowdfunding Creative Jam

Everyone is eligible to post prompts, which may be words or phrases, titles, images, etc. Prompters may request a specific creator, but everyone else may still use that prompt if they wish. Prompts may specify a particular character/world/etc. but creators may use the prompt for something else anyway and post the results. Prompters are still encouraged to post mostly prompts that anyone could use anywhere, as this maximizes the chance of having creators make something based on your prompt. Please title your comment "Prompt" or "Prompts" when providing inspiration so these are easy to find.

Prompt responses may also be treated as prompts and used for further inspiration. For example, a prompt may lead to a sketch which leads to a story, and so on. This kind of cascading inspiration is one of the most fun things about a collective jam session.

Everyone is eligible to use prompts, and everyone who wants to use a given prompt may do so, for maximum flexibility of creator choice in inspiration. You do not have to post a "Claim" reply when you decide to use a prompt, but this does help indicate what is going on so that other prompters can spread out their choice of prompts if they wish.

Creators are encouraged, but not required, to post at least one item free. Likewise, sharing a private copy of material with the prompter is encouraged but not required. Creative material resulting from prompts should be indicated in a reply to the prompt, with a link to the full content elsewhere on the creator's site (if desired); a brief excerpt and/or description of the material may be included in the reply (if desired). It helps to title your comment "Prompt Filled" or something like that so these are easy to identify. There is no time limit on responding to prompts. However, creators are encouraged to post replies sooner rather than later, as the attention of prompters will be highest during and shortly after the session.

Some items created from prompts may become available for sponsorship. Some creators may offer perks for donations, linkbacks, or other activity relating to this project. Check creator comments and links for their respective offerings.

Prompters, creators, and bystanders are expected to behave in a responsible and civil manner. If the moderators have to drag someone out of the sandbox for improper behavior, we will not be amused. Please respect other people's territory and intellectual property rights, and only play with someone else's characters/setting/etc. if you have permission. (Fanfic/fanart freebies are okay.) If you want to invite folks to play with something of yours, title the comment something like "Open Playground" so it's easy to spot. This can be a good way to attract new people to a shared world or open-source project, or just have some good non-canon fun.

Boost the signal! The more people who participate, the more fun this will be. Hopefully we'll see activity from a lot of folks who regularly mention their projects in this community, but new people are always welcome. You can link to this session post or to individual items created from prompts, whatever you think is awesome enough to recommend to your friends.

"In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with its social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it." - Ernst Fischer

“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” - Pablo Picasso

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” -Scott Adams

Song Prompt: She Paints From Life (mp3 link) by Pete Ryder (official site link)
    For any for whom the song is inaccessible (or who prefer this), some lyric excerpts that could be treated as independent prompts:

    "Wednesday night she paints from life,
    Tubes of colour and a palette knife,
    But if you paint from life well it's a fact,
    Life in turn will
    Paint you back"

    "She sees it all, she looks so far
    Into the place where secrets are
    She sees it all and by degrees
    She's drawn into the world she sees"

    "Too many pictures, hanging in my gallery
    Too many images, a hall of mirrors maze
    Which is the real
    Which is illusion
    As the light strikes her such different ways"

Concept Prompt: Apprenticeship - ancient and modern, and linking the two.

Quote Prompt: "Art is the sharing of dreams, and the telling of nightmares." (-myself)

With [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith's permission, here's a prompt in Terremagne, the setting of Polychrome Heroics:

Someone develops the ability to see superpowers as patterns of light and color around the soups. They begin to sketch and paint the people and the patterns, and their works draw attention as art even apart from the soup connection.

POSSIBLE ADDITION: Gradually the artist starts to be able to interpret these patterns, recognizing powers of soups they don't know and even, sometimes, powers they've never seen before. The meanings are by no means obvious in the pictures, as the connection between power and pattern is complex, but they are there.

Being stuck all day spawned prompts

Saturday is not usually so consumed in errands that I have to stop partway through one to go to my weekly knitting group. That press of boring, everyday tasks put me so far off my stride as a fiber artist that I couldn't begin to relax and enjoy making stitches for at least the first hour-- half of the usual session!

But, it also spawned several prompt ideas, I'm only now home to post:

-} When the pressure to create grows too intense, a person may find 'spillover' art in the strangest of places. What did the frustrated artist discover the next morning, on the familiar route from bed to kitchen?

-} Several people admired our group's works, but insisted that they “weren't creative.” What if this were an actual curse?

-} Imagine a school system which ensures, from the very earliest infants in day care, a minimum number of creative hours per week, not “arts and crafts” assigned by the adults. What ELSE would this change in the world?

-} I have a deep love of “heirloom” crafts. Any scene with a teacher and new student would be bliss.

-} The division between word art and visual art is not nearly as clear as many people believe. Play with it! (GRIN.)
