The Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity is pleased to introduce No Label: Invisible State, an independent online art project run by artist and textile designer, Victoria Chikovani, which celebrates the creativity and imagination of dyslexic people.
“I created this project thinking about all the great people I've met. Those who turned dyslexia into their advantage and those who didn’t, and who deserved a better treatment and support of society at the time when they most needed it. This project is about and for people who want to discover their creative potential and share their artistic vision by practicing art and meeting like minded people. We display artworks of all participants on social media and promote them to different creative and dyslexia related organisations to encourage more people to engage in arts.”
In these challenging times, many more people are turning to art as a way of managing the uncertainties and isolation that social distancing brings. We agree with Victoria that art is a great way to share thoughts, ideas and emotions, and that anyone can give it a go.
The project welcomes both professional and amateur artists, and those people just beginning their artistic journeys. It was due to end in March, but due to its popularity the organisers are working on a second informative part which aims to raise awareness of dyslexia and develop an understanding of what it feels like to be dyslexic.
Artwork is posted regularly on the project’s Instagram account under the hashtag #nolabelinvisiblestate.
Victoria and her team invite further participation and look forward to hearing new stories and seeing your art, as do we at the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Charity!
