Harpur Trust 450yr

Art Competition 

The Harpur Trust celebrated their 450 year anniversary with an arts competition in 2016. Children across Bedford Borough schools were invited to submit their creative outcomes, working alongside a team of practising artists.

I was fortunate to be chosen as one of theses

artists and collaborated with Beauchamp Middle School, Harrold Middle School, Edith Cavell Lower School & Goldington Green Academy.

Taking part in a project like this is inspiring in a number of ways from evolving ideas and directions from the schools to developing samples and seeing the creative process in action from all the students who took part. I was so impressed with the high standard of work produced from the children and the commitment from everyone involved from Bedford schools, Bedford Archives Service & Hurpur Trust project organisers.
