Escape Into Life

 (We have a Facebook page now – do come and “like” us and say hi)

Tomorrow is the biggest day in eight cuts gallery’s existence. By a long chalk. And on the eve of the Chris Al-Aswad Prize announcement, it would be inconceivable to highlight anything except Escape Into Life, the site and community he built from nothing to 100,000 hits a month and 2,500 participants in just a year. Escape Into Life is a showcase for amazing artists and writers. It’s a community for them. It’s a whole world of creativity devoted to breaking down barriers wherever they exist.

  4. Chris grew the site to well over 1000 artists and over 12,000 Twitter followers in a little over a year.

    He was a charismatic, inspiring man who is deeply missed. You can still follow his site, which we are actively maintaining, via RSS feed, on Facebook, Twitter and tumblr.

    We would greatly appreciate your doing so, to help keep his dream and legacy alive.

    Thank you Dan so much for helping to keep Chris’s dream alive with this award of recognition. Escape into Life continues to inspire more and more unique visitors daily. In the month of September EIL grew to over 130,900 unique visitors and continues to keep on inspiring.

    Thank you everyone for your support!
