This year we’re celebrating our 50th Birthday and, to mark this very special occasion, we‘re showcasing the work of local young artists! We invited all children and young people in Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan, Bridgend, Rhondda Cynon Taf and Merthyr Tydfil to send themselves a postcard from an imagined future, half a century from now. We asked them to let their imaginations run wild: How will we travel? What will school look like? Where will we live? What will we eat?
We had an amazing 1200 submissions from 17 different schools, and we’re so excited to see such incredible talent.
We worked with an expert panel of judges to sift through all the submissions and make the difficult decision to choose the top three from each age group (5-8 years, 9-11 years and 12-16 years).
Then we asked for your help to pick your favourite and we want to thank you for voting! The winning artwork will be revealed on 12 November on the Lightbox at the front of our building.
We’re so impressed with the creativity of our young people, we don’t want this to be all about the final nine, so we’re pleased to say that you can see all the submissions in an online exhibition too.
Thank you to all the schools, and to the amazing children and young people who entered their incredible proposals.
