Lincs Inspire Arts development and Library teams have a brilliant opportunity for young people aged 15 years and under to submit a piece of artwork to be exhibited throughout January and February 2023 in the Albert Room at Cleethorpes Library.

With funding from Arts Council England, the teams are really excited to be able to invite young people to show their work in a professional gallery setting. There's no set theme, so there is absolutely no limit to entrants' creativity!

We are also offering the opportunity for schools to submit a group or class piece and of course, pupils can submit an individual piece if they like too.

The final date for submissions is Saturday, 10th December 2022.

There are some fantastic prizes up for grabs, full details and a downloadable entry form are below. Good luck!
