Borough wide art competition 'looks to the future'

Date: 

Wednesday, 23 January, 2019

Calling all 5-18 year olds! Can you imagine what Epsom and Ewell will look like in the future? Why not put your imagination to the test by creating a 'scene from the future' of your local area. There are prizes to be won! Find out more and enter today, see www.future40.org/competition  

The Future40 art competition is open to students aged between 5-18 years that go to school or live in the borough. Based on the theme, ‘Proud of our past, preparing for our future’, they are invited to use any artistic method they like – this could be a traditional painting, collage, sculpture or even a piece of music to imagine what their local area could look like in the future. The closing date for the art competition is Friday 5 April 2019.

The winning entries from each age category will have their work displayed at the Town Hall at a special exhibition and receive both a book voucher prize for themselves and their school library. The most creative ‘scenes’ will be included in the draft Future40 vision plan for the borough which will be presented in the summer 2019.

Councillor Eber Kington, Chairman of the Council's Strategy and Resources Committee said, "The art competition, forms part of the wider Future40 campaign and is designed to encourage children and young adults in Epsom and Ewell to start thinking about the future of their local area.

"We hope that schools, youth groups and parents will help us ensure the younger generation start thinking about the physical world and communities they will be growing up in by encouraging them to take part in this future focussed art competition."
