Budding BBO artists come together to showcase creations

BBO competition

The ‘Building Better Opportunities’ project is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund. The funding supports projects in Hertfordshire to tackle poverty and promote social inclusion.

We held an art competition for BBO participants, hub users and engagement activity attendees. This was to promote ‘sustainability’, one of our cross-cutting themes. We wanted to see smart, innovative and creative representation of what ‘sustainability’ meant to them. We accepted pictures, sculptures, photographs and pieces of art made from sustainable/recyclable materials. We wanted to encourage the public to be more aware of the process of maintaining change in a balanced environment in which resources are exploited.

Many participants got involved and all ideas were quite remarkable. We awarded the winners with vouchers at an award ceremony. Everyone that took part in the competition received a certificate, had their artwork displayed in Hertford County Hall and was featured in an Art of Sustainability Picture Book.
