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. The closing date will be in March 2019. More details available soon.
For any queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
