This year, the RWA are collaborating with Bristol Neuroscience Festival to deliver an exciting Brain Art competition for schools in Bristol and the surrounding area.
The festival, which will take place at the University of Bristol on 18-19 March, is a two day public science event for all ages that will celebrate the fascinating world of neuroscience research. The festival will include exhibits, talks and plenty of hands-on activities for families. There will also be lots of opportunities to meet neuroscience researchers, clinicians and local organisations and learn about all things brain-related. For information on all events, visit the festival listings page.
The Brain Art competition invites children aged between 5 – 18 to submit pieces of work that are inspired by the brain – how it works, what it looks like, or simply the amazing things it can do!
Entries will be judged on originality and creativity by a panel that includes the RWA’s own Learning and Participation Manager, Joel Edwards.
There are six prizes in total and first prize is £100. All prize-winning and commended pieces of work will be displayed in the Fedden Gallery at the RWA from Tuesday 22 March to Sunday 17 April, where members of the public will be able to view the work for free.
The deadline for receipt of entries is 4 March 2016.
