YOUTH ARTS EXHIBITION 2019: Bright Lights

1 February 2019 – 9 March 2019

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

Arts Centre Washington’s annual Youth Arts Exhibition is searching for submissions for BRIGHT
LIGHTS. Supported by Sunderland Culture, BRIGHT LIGHTS will showcase some of the most
exciting artwork by young people in Washington and the Greater Sunderland Area, and will be
curated by a group of young local artists. This is an exciting opportunity for 11-19 year olds to
submit artwork for display in Arts Centre Washington’s professional gallery, or to join us as a
young curator to learn how to select artwork for exhibition and design an exhibition.
All submissions, whether included in the final exhibition or not, will be uploaded to a public
Instagram account using the hashtag #brightlightsofsunderland and our website as a record of
your achievement so you can share the work with your family and friends.
Submissions open until 12noon Friday 4th January 2019.
