A Thousand Journals in from the Wild
If you’re searching for your creative spirit then perhaps you’ll find the 1000 journals project will find you.
An artist humbly calling himself Someguy began the project in 2000 by releasing 1000 journals in San Francisco. The idea was that “those who find the journals add something to them. A story, drawing, photograph, anything really.”
Since then several writers, artists and creative people have found the books around the world. At the risk of being parochial, we think the Australian contributions were particularly strong including poems and full colour sketches.
A documentary about the project is screening on ABC2 on Sunday 13 June at 7.30pm and repeated on ABC1 20 June 3.30pm.
