Due to Covid-19, we have postponed our physical exhibition at Batley Art Gallery, but we still want to celebrate and show off the young creative talent in this area.

This opportunity is for young artists aged 18 and under.

We’ve seen creativity blossom while our community has been self-isolating, from colourful rainbows displayed in windows to the innovative new crafting skills to new poems and creative writing to atmospheric photos taken on daily walks.

To celebrate the creativity emerging in this time of crisis, we are inviting artists who are 18 and under to submit artwork responding to the theme of TRIBE.

We sometimes think of tribe as a close-knit group of people who have been bound together by a school, family or wider community. As the world is going through so much disruption at the moment, you might be inspired by how the meaning of tribe has changed. Do you interact with your tribe online now rather than face-to-face? What does keeping two metres apart from friends or the wider community mean for tribe?

Or you could think about how your tribe is apart – many of us can’t see our family and friends, and are worried about our loved ones. You might want to focus on documenting your daily walk with your camera, or draw a comic strip of your daily life now you’re without your usual tribe.

Brigantia is Creative Scene’s creative space in Dewsbury that connects artists and creative people and offers training, events, networking and arts workshops. The name is inspired by the goddess of the north – a champion of the arts and the protector of the largest tribe in Yorkshire.

Responding to this theme, we welcome submissions in any medium including, but not limited to, photography, painting, screen-printing, short pieces of creative writing, sculpture, mixed-media, video art, crafts or textiles.

Up to 30 artworks will be selected for the show, and you must be 18 or under to enter.

To submit work to Brigantia Artists you must be living or working in North Kirklees. (Dewsbury, Batley, Cleckheaton, Heckmondwike, Mirfield and all the streets, villages and suburbs in between).
