This year we turned 50 and, as part of our celebrations, we wanted to showcase the talent of local young people! 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, 50 years from now. We asked them to let their imaginations run wild: How will we travel? What will we eat? Will we live in space or under the ocean? What will school look like?
We had an amazing 1200 submissions from 17 different schools, with ages ranging from 5 to 16 years. We were so excited to see such incredible talent and we can’t wait to share all the artworks that we received right here online.
In the meantime, we’re working with an expert panel to sift through all the submissions and make the difficult decision to pick the top three from each age group (5-8 years, 9-11 years and 12-16 years). Once we’ve done this, we’ll be asking you to vote for a winner whose artwork will be displayed at the front of Chapter for 6 months! Voting opens on 7 September so watch out on our social media platforms for more information @chaptertweets.
Head to Chapter on 12 November for the grand unveiling and come back here to see all 1200 submissions in an exciting and dynamic digital exhibition.
