Tower Hamlets Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (RE) would like to invite children and young people from all school phases to join our Spirited Arts Competition.

We welcome entries of art (drawing, painting or sketching etc) from all Tower Hamlets pupils.

Pupils can enter individually or as a group. The competition starts on 26 March 2021 and closes on 7 June 2021.

There are 5 different themes to choose from:

  • "We have far more in common with each other than divides us"
  • God's good earth - Beautiful World, Wonderful God
  • Where is God?
  • Healing
  • Inspiring

Further information about these themes can be found on the details of themes link below. Pupils should write briefly about their artwork. Some suggested prompts for this are provided below, but free writing is encouraged. A single A4 sheet of 400 words is the maximum size for the pupil’s commentaries.
