Think Global’s Start the Change programme is collaborating with NASUWT’s Arts and Minds to run a UK wide art competition. NASUWT has been running this art competition for over 10 years, with the aim of celebrating cultural diversity.
This year, through the Start the Change programme, we have been working with schools across London and the North East to reflect on issues affecting young people and to give them the confidence and agency to find solutions to these problems. This art competition is another part of this journey which digs a little deeper in understanding our history and the role that diversity has played, and will continue to play, in shaping the future of this country.
Think Global has a special recognition award within the arts and minds competition, which champions young people celebrating diversity and identity through their creative work. This award will celebrate the intertwined nature of our histories, cultures and multiple identities by acknowledging pieces which inspire a more cohesive society within the UK.
