Keep Swindon Tidy poster making
Can you design a poster to encourage us all to Keep Swindon Tidy?
Since the lockdown has eased, we've noticed that not everyone is making use of bins or taking their rubbish home, including disposable face masks which are ending up discarded in some areas. Posters encouraging people to keep areas tidy are shown to help reduce litter by helping change accepted norms.
So, Keep Swindon Tidy and Plastic Free Swindon are teaming up to create a gallery of posters to encourage everyone in Swindon to keep our town tidy. The gallery is open to entries from the 1st September 2020. Children and big children (adults) from across Swindon are encouraged to send in their designs.
Entries can address any litter theme (avoiding single use plastic/ wearing reusable masks/ taking litter home with you/ using the bins) and be relevant to a particular area (eg, Keep our Town Centre tidy/ Keep Haydon Wick Tidy), or for the whole of Swindon.
This isn't a competition, it’s about co-operation. All entries will be displayed with the name and age of the artist on our gallery page. As the gallery grows, the posters will be available for other residents, community groups and schools to download, print off and display, to encourage us all to help keep our neighbourhoods looking lovely.
We have written to all parishes and the council asking them to compliment this activity by displaying posters in public areas.
We're so looking forward to seeing the inspiring and imaginative designs that Swindon's budding artists send in!
Draw the change that you want to see in the world!
