CELEBRATE OUR, YOUR, THEIR ART

A launch event in Parliament for our #ARTCONNECTS19 Festival to celebrate our art:

‘ART IS WHAT WE CALL IT
WHEN WHAT WE DO
MIGHT CONNECT US’

Seth Godin

Whether your art is painting, percussion, drawing, dancing, DJing, coding, composing playing an instrument or playing football if it connects you and you’re passionate about it, it’s your art.

  • Be proud of it.

  • Practice it.

  • Perfect it.

  • Protect it.

It’s what makes you human and is your human right.

Everyone is welcome

We have space for 170 artists like you.

We want to see and hear from children either in school groups of 12 or with parents and other creative carers or in smaller groups individually.

We’ve timed it after school to make that as easy as possible.

STAND UP FOR YOUR ART

In his famous TED talk, French Street JR told us to “stand up for what you care about”. As part of our #ARTCONNECTS19 Festival we’re collaborating with on his $1m ‘Inside Out’ Global TED Art project and would love you to be part of it too.

Download a template, send us a selfie and we’ll try to get it printed out in time for this event, if not the festival.
