Artefact to Art competition
What do ancient artefacts tell us? Can objects from antiquity inspire us to think in new ways, and to engage creatively with the past?
After a brilliantly successful first year in 2017-18, the Artefact to Art competition is back for 2018-19.
This year, we are inviting creative responses to ancient artefacts around a specific theme - Roman Britain. We will be accepting entries in the following categories:
- Visual art
- Poetry (no more than 100 lines - this category includes spoken word, hip hop poetry, and rap)
- Short stories (no more than 1,000 words)
The competition is organised into three age groups: under 11; 11-14; and 15-18. Winners in each category will be win the chance to attend a creative masterclass with a leading professional artist, poet or author as appropriate.
To enter, please download and fill in the entry form (PDF, 16kb). Then send the completed form, along with your entry (or a photograph of it if it is a visual piece of art) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Selected entries will be displayed in the A2A exhibition on 6-8th July at the CA-FIEC conference in London.
Due to popular request, the closing date for entries has been extended to Wednesday 17th April.
This year's theme: Roman Britain
Not sure where to start with our theme for the year?
- Why not take a look at our classroom resources for inspiration?
- We have been uncovering a lot more about Roman Leicester recently - why not look into the Roman history of your own local area?
- Finally, Roman Britain is never far from the headlines - what about last year's controversy over racial diversity in Roman Britain?
