Calling all inspired Art Students


Earlier this ASPIRE launched this Art Competition as part of this year’s ASPIRE production The Pecking Order.  Due to the current climate the production will now take place in January 2021 we have extended the closing date for this competition.

In honour of our feathered friends, we would like to invite students, of any age, from our diocesan schools to create a model bird that will be displayed in the foyer during production week.  Our aim is to create a wonderful art exhibition at the Civic Theatre for the duration of the production to showcase the work of our talented Visual Arts students.  These birds will also be displayed around the Catholic Schools Office during Term 4 2020.

The bird sculpture can be as realistic or as imaginary as you desire. Our only stipulation is that it be made from found objects e.g. recyclable and/or natural materials. Create your own special bird or work together as a class to create one large bird! Teachers might like to make it a class project.

A team from the ASPIRE committee will select the winners. There will be two categories:

  • Individual student sculpture
  • Class/group sculpture

The winner in the class category will receive free transport and tickets to the Friday evening performance of The Pecking Order and the individual student will receive a double pass to the Friday night performance plus an exclusive look behind the scenes at the Civic Theatre.

All entries must be received at the Catholic Schools Office by Friday 16 October 2020.
