WHAT IS THIS ART EXHIBITION ABOUT ?
The Wyre Forest Green Alliance has organised the exhibition for various reasons.
- It's an opportunity to have fun showing off your creative skills!
- By choosing the Planet Earth theme, we also hope to raise general awareness of COP26
- There will be a virtual exhibition which will be an interactive photo/video online display
- We also hope to put on a real live art exhibition at a local venue. We will release details on the location and date sometime in summer when the Covid situation is clearer.
COP26? SHOULD I CARE ?
is the 26th UN Climate Change Conference, taking place in Glasgow the week following our exhibition. Hence our timing! It is seen as the last chance to take serious action against Climate Change.
To quote David Attenborough:"Surely we will have a responsibility to care for our Blue Planet. The future of humanity and indeed, all life on earth now depends on us. The moment of crisis has come."
So we invite local people to get creative and show each other and our government how much we care about the future of our planet and our children, and their children.
HOW DO I TAKE PART ?
Simply create something that shows love and concern for our amazing Planet Earth. It could be a drawing, painting, sculpture, tapestry, a story, poem, song lyrics or music, a short video, a dance, a poster or whatever works for you.
Then take a picture to show what you've produced and email it to us together with the submission form on the next page.
Submissions start 31st March 2021 - the online exhibition will display photos roughly in the order received so send early to get your art at the front of the presentation. It's all free! Email us if you need help.
IS MY ART WORK SUITABLE ?
The answer will almost certainly be yes as we take such a broad spectrum of ideas and media. However, if in doubt, just email us a picture of your artwork for comment and we'll get back to you.
HOW CAN I HELP PUBLICISE IT ?
- You can post your photos on our newly created Instagram hashtag #art4planetearth

- You can download and print off a poster (also on the Info Pack page) to display
