The pandemic has dramatically impacted our opportunities for socializing together in person. Though digital technology has offered some reprieve, there is nothing more special than receiving a postcard from a new or long-time friend! heARTscapes is the theme for this year’s tapestry postcard exchange and invites participants to connect with one another by weaving messages of care, hope, and inspiration during our time of social distancing.
Entrants will be randomly paired and will be able to exchange communication with each other in order to design a special tapestry postcard that they will send to their partner. Participants are encouraged (but not required) to submit their woven postcards to ATA. We will be promote submitted postcards on Instagram as a form of sharing these messages of heartfelt encouragement to others throughout the year.
Registration opens on February 14, 2021. Please check back then to submit your intent to enter! Registration fee is only $15. Membership required.
