Liverpool - An artistic take on equality

1st January 2010 at 00:00

liverpool school pupils attended the launch of the Equality and Human Rights Commission's (EHRC) national youth art award, held in the city last month.

Young Brits at Art 2010 invites 11 to 19-year-olds to express their vision of a world free from prejudice, offering young people the chance to explore their opinions on the subject.

Students will be able to submit their take on the topic through a variety of medium including photography, sculpture, animation, painting and drawing.

National curriculum teaching packs will be available to schools offering a guide to both teachers and their pupils, while young people can also develop their own artwork and enter independently.

Baroness Margaret Prosser, deputy chair of the EHRC, said: "We want to celebrate young people's talent and give them a platform to show us how they picture a world where inequality and discrimination doesn't exist.

"By addressing the causes and effects of inequality through art young people can help paint a future built on fairness and respect." rv.
