BROMSGROVE residents aged between 16 and 25 have been challenged by a town homeless charity to create a piece of art on the theme of ‘Young People Today’.
The North Worcestershire Basement Project has launched the contest in the run up to an open day which will showcase what the organisation does.
The charity wants those who fall into the age category it caters for to get creative, whether it be through painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, collage, poetry, rap or any other form of art.
Entry is free, work needs to be submitted to The Basement Project, 1 Hanover Street, by June 26 and there will be prizes for the best two selected.
Those pieces will then be displayed and judging will take place on July 3, when the open day takes place.
During that event, anyone is welcome to drop-in between 12.30pm and 4.30pm to see what the Basement Project is all about and to vote on which art work they like the best. There will also be a barbecue, weather permitting.
The open day will cap a very busy fortnight for the Basement Project – there is the charity’s AGM the week before – at 4pm on June 22 at the Black Cross and a pub quiz at the same venue on June 25. That starts at 7.30pm and anyone wanting more information on either of those events should call 01527 832993.
