“Mail Art across the World” travels all around the world freely and its
vocation is to be the favorite link between the calligraphers from anywhere.
If you want to offer your candidacy, MAAW is open to all interested people
of all countries. If you are a calligraphy guild, a professional calligrapher,
or any other accredited cultural organization, you can welcome "Mail Art
Across the World" in your country by asking to the organizer of your country
on the right.
This project is free from charge. You are free to exhibit the mail-arts
the way you like : for a single exhibition or with other works, during
an "open-doors" or a festival, in a library, a gallery, a museum,
an office mail-post, a cultural center... etc.
Mail-arts travel in a simple mail-box : it offers flexibility and cheap
postal cost. It permits many ways for exhibiting (under frames, under
glass, suspended on a wire, under plastic cover...)
If you choose to become an organizer, you commit yourselves
to exhibit envelopes safely from steal or damage. You commit yourselves
taking responsibility for the expenses due to sending the envelopes from
your country to next organisation and managing the organization of your
exhibition (place, material, ad, insurance...).
