Vivienne Westwood's political agenda is as world-renowned as her designs. And her latest project is open to the public, so it's time to speak up and be heard - and possibly seen as well.
Along with Lee (with whom Dame Viv partnered on a denim collection that launched this summer), Vivienne Westwood Anglomania is launching an online installation, 100 Days of Active Resistance. From 8 September, the site is accepting submissions of artwork and photography from members of the public. The submission requirement? Artworks should represent Westwood's principal idea of Active Resistance, which is "that you get out of life what you put in and that real experience of the world involves thinking."
Each day, one artwork will be featured on the site for the next 100 days, culminating in a London exhibition of the best 100 works received. The launch of the site and Westwood's collaboration with Lee will be fêted with a party and exhibition of Westwood's denim pieces past and present in her W1 stores in London on 8 September, coinciding with Vogue's Fashion's Night Out.
To submit a work of art (the image must be 640 x 480 pixels, landscape or portrait), visit www.ar100days.com. For more information on Active Resistance, visit www.activeresistance.co.uk. Time to get creative.
