As part of the Year of the Environment, we’d like you to get creative and enter our competition to exhibit your art at York Minster and in churches around the Diocese.
We’re holding a Big Environment Celebration at York Minster on Saturday 28th May, and as part of this celebration, we want to exhibit art from churches across the Diocese on the theme of ‘God’s Creation’. The exhibition will be staying at the Minster for a fortnight and then travelling to six churches across the Diocese for a week each.
So, how can you enter? We’d like you to create an artwork in whatever medium you like, whether you are an adult, child or an art group. The theme will be ‘God’s Creation’, but if you want to focus on something more specific, you could think about on one of the six themes we're focussing on over the year - energy, biodiversity, water, transport, purchasing, and waste and recycling.
Once you’ve created your artwork, take a photo (or several photos if it’s a sculpture) and send it to Eleanor Course at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Diocesan House by 26 April. The competition will be judged by the Dean of York, the Very Revd Keith Jones; art lecturer Viola Jones; and the Minster's Collections Manager, Vicky Harrison. So get creative!
