‘The Spirit of Summer’ Art Competition

Posted 03:17PM on Thursday 28 May 2020

During this unprecedented time, it’s been an inspiration for us to see how the people we support, their families and our staff and their families have responded to the situation. 

We’ve seen the unleashing of some wonderful creativity in the last few months , so we thought we’d set a challenge, for anyone who wants to get involved, to come up with a piece of art that represents ‘The spirit of Summer 2020’.

If you would like to take part in our arty competition all you have to do is come up with an original creation between now and the 19 June.  Your entry is limited only by your imagination, it could be a painting, a video, a poem, a story, a piece of music, or performance, or something you build, or sculpt, or anything else you can think of.

To enter, simply post a picture, or recording, of your entry on our Facebook Page (PositivefuturesIE in ROI, PositiveFutures95 in NI) by midnight on the 19 June.

Entries to our competition will be judged by a panel of the people we support, chaired by Tara Dunne, Tuath Glas Service Manager.  The 3 that are judged to best represent the ‘Spirit Of Summer 2020’ will be announced on Facebook on 26th June and will win one of 3 Summer Picnic Hampers kindly provided by TESCO.

We hope you have fun coming up with your entries.
