youth art compGirls just want to have Fun(damental Human Rights)! Art Competition

16 daysThe Central Australian Family Violence and Sexual Assault Network (CAFVSAN) is calling for entries into the 2016 Girls just want to have Fun(damental Human Rights)! Art competition and exhibition. The exhibition will open on the 25th of November and will run until 10th of December, with winners announced on the 25th November. There will be a category for primary school students and a category for secondary school students, with entries open to both girls and boys.

This year the 16 Days of Action Against Gender-based Violence campaign theme is ‘From peace in the home to peace in the world: make education safe for all’. CAFVSAN sees this as an exciting opportunity to raise awareness of this issue and to invite parents, students and schools to explore this idea together. The theme of the competition and exhibition is ‘Girls Just Want to have Fun(damental) Human Rights!’ and we encourage creative expressions of what this means to students.

Students may want to consider:

What does education mean to you?

What does equal opportunity to education mean?

What does your school do to make education safe and equal for girls?

Older students may want to consider:

How does gender-based violence hinder the right to education, either locally, nationally or internationally?

Who is left out of safe and equal access to education?

“Education is a human right and an essential tool for achieving the goals of equality, development and peace”

Artworks must be dropped off between the 7th of November and Monday the 21st of November 2016. We will notify all entrants of the venue closer to the date. Work can be two or three dimensional and CAFVSAN will make every effort to include all submitted artwork.

Entries will be judged based on the creativity and originality of the depicted theme, by a panel of jurors chosen by CAFVSAN members. Prizes will be determined closer to the exhibition date, based on donations received.
