Young Artists Prize
The Blacktown City Art Prize celebrates the creativity of local young people with an environmentally-themed Young Artists Prize.
The theme of the Blacktown City Young Artists Prize for 2019 is Repair & Restore, asking young artists to respond to:
Countries around the world have declared that climate change is a real emergency. As our climate becomes hotter, what positive things can we do to cool our homes, cities and natural environments?
This section is open to 5 – 15 year olds who live or go to school in Blacktown City.
Please join us for the launch of the Young Artists Prize exhibition featuring artworks by local children.
