Hold onto the original artworks in case your pupils are selected to be in the exhibition.

Elephant in the Room Art Exhibition

The exhibition is a great opportunity to showcase the work of students from a number of schools.

Elephant in the Room

As you may be aware, last year’s Headteachers Conference focused on the issues of mental health and young people. The happiness and wellbeing of our pupils are crucial to their flourishing and educational success. There were a number of CPD courses that focused on particular aspects of this work.

You are  invited to participate in an exhibition, alongside professional artists, in an exhibition of artwork on the theme of ‘Elephant in the room’.

The exhibition is being organised by the Media Community Network, a charity founded in 2006 which has produced 10 short films addressing issues affecting young people. Such issues range from poverty, disability and marginalisation to diversity and inclusion as well as addressing children affected by domestic violence, regeneration, child neglect and bullying.

The artworks addressing theme Elephant in the Room can be:

– Individual, class or whole school

– Any media or materials

– From infants, primary, secondary or post 16 pupils

– A maximum size of image A3

What do you need to do?

– Email us info@theelephantintheroom.co.uk to let me know if pupils in your school are interested in participating.

The professional artists (also creating artworks for the exhibition) have agreed to visit some participating schools to run arts workshops with the pupils. Please indicate if you would also be interested in having an artist visit.

– You should select the winning entries 1st, 2nd and 3rd. (Group entries will go in a separate category as we are not expecting many entries). Please go to the website http://theelephantintheroom.co.uk/ and follow the instructions on uploading these three artworks as digital images from your school. If there is any confusion please contact me Laverne Hunt at info@theelephantintheroom.co.uk

Each image should be accompanied by a five line (maximum) narrative from the artist/s explaining their thoughts behind the artwork. Hold onto the original artworks and we will agree arrangements for receiving Artworks.

The deadline is the Friday 31 March. If you have any problems with deadline, please contact me as the exhibition does not start until May so there is a little flexible.

We would like to see all entries to acknowledge hard work made by students and would invite you to copy each entry into an A3 display book that can also be displayed alongside your school’s allocated area at the Menier Galler

There is no cost for the schools to participate and it is open to all schools and colleges in the Diocese. Any money raised through the exhibition or other activities will support, assisting young people with mental health issues in London and across the south east.

I hope this is something that inspires your pupils and can be part of your school’s broader PHSE and arts curriculum.
