The Ghostly Commission

To celebrate the launch of the International Ghost Appreciation Society we’re looking to commission a piece of artwork to be unveiled at our launch event, and stashed lovingly forever in our archive.

As an open-minded and international ghost hunting society, we’re not prescriptive about medium or format. We’re open to poems, paintings, sculptures, films, interpretive dances and more.

The goal is to create something interesting, memorable and which can help define the identity of our nascent ghost hunting society.

The selected artist will be paid £100. The piece will be unveiled at our launch event in January 2023, which will take place in Edinburgh. As such, ideas from local artists are particularly encouraged.

Call for Entries - The Enigma of Objects

The Enigma of Objects 

** Submissions invited for an instagram-based exhibition. **

This project invites photos of irreplaceable objects from your personal collection, with reflections on why they are special and what they evoke. Submissions will be curated on instagram, offering a peek into contemporary material culture through crowd-sourced artifacts and stories.

  • 2/3 photos of an object from your personal collection. Ensure good lighting and a white backdrop. 
  • A short write up on its significance and what it evokes. Max. 500 characters.
  • Your name and city. You may use a pseudonym if you wish to stay anonymous.

Looking forward to seeing your objects and reading your micro-stories!

Slackline Storytellers

As part of our mission to tell the stories of women aged 35+, we’re looking for YOUR story.

In honour of International Women’s Day 2021, we’re compiling some of our favourite stories of women 35+ who have inspired, challenged or uplifted you into a multi-chapter storytelling film.

Some examples:

Are you female-identifying aged 35+ with an inspiring story of your own?

Do you come from a family with a strong matriarch you’d like to tell us about?

Is there a teacher, mentor or friend who deserves a shout? Tell us about them!

Does your culture have an uplifting story of women that we need to hear?


Videos should be storytelling-style (we’re not looking for films, but you’re welcome to interpret creatively!)
