There's a great piece by Hannah Waldram on the Guardian Cardiff website today, which has alerted us at BBC Wales Arts Towers to a new street art project.

Paper Girl is a fresh arts initiative that involves an unusual way of distributing art work to the general pubic, which started in Berlin and has found its way to Wales' capital city. There's a lovely article on the Deutsche Welle website about the project that originated in Berlin, which apparently "started as a joke among design students".

Members of the public are encouraged to submit pieces of their art - be it drawings, paintings, zines, posters, textiles, prints or photos. It is planned for the pieces to be exhibited in a gallery space before, rather excitingly, these original pieces of art are randomly distributed on the streets of Cardiff via an organised bicycle ride, where cyclists distributes the rolled up art while on the move.

Intrigued? Find out more about the project, and how to submit your artwork before the deadline date of Friday 27 May, on the Paper Girl Cardiff blog and keep up to date on Twitter.
