Year 8 Art students in National Vote to be published!Posted on: 13/09/2021
In the Summer term, budding poets, artists and photographers were asked to submit their most engaging and creative work for publication in a new student-led collaborative anthology to give a voice to eco-conscious youth.
The anthology, ‘Words and Pictures for Your World’, will be based around five categories aligning with the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (the ‘SDGs’), and will be launched later this year to coincide with and celebrate COP26 – the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference taking place in Glasgow in November 2021.
Planetary International were looking for words and pictures that could be linked together in the anthology. The pictures could take the form of traditional art or own relevant photography to create an extraordinary collection of the written word and visual imagery by students, for the planet. Four of our students, now in Year 8, have been shortlisted and are in the public vote.
