Get creative with a canvas, get your masterpiece displayed and raise money for local charities in the process.
For the first time, the charity art exhibition, organised by Cambridgeshire Timebanking Partnership, has been opened up to entrants across Cambridgeshire. A similar contest has previously run in the south of the county.
Entrants of all ages can purchase a 12 inch canvas for £10 and produce their own work of art.
Entries will be exhibited anonymously at prestigious Kings College in Cambridge on Saturday, November 12, and will be available to purchase for £45 each.
Proceeds will go to Cambridgeshire Timebanking Partnership.
Irene Russell, of Littleport Timebank, was promoting the art exhibition during the recent Aquafest in Ely.
She said: “It’s a different way to get your art noticed. It’s a great way of raising money for charities and showing off the artistic talent we’ve got.”
Timebanking is a way of giving and receiving to build supportive networks and strong communities. People can build Timebank hours by volunteering. For every hour earned, they get an hour back.
This fundraiser will allow Timebanks to support even more people to learn new skills, find companionship and connect with their communities.
Cambridge Hub will also benefit and use the funds to support their work.
All submissions must submitted by October 21.
