Keep Swindon Tidy poster making
Can you design a poster to encourage us all to Keep Swindon Tidy?
Litter is a big problem in Swindon, as it is across the UK and the rest of the world. It is a problem for our health physically and mentally. In dealing with a virus, we have created billions of masks and gloves that end up polluting our environment. So what can we do to change this?
Signs encouraging people to keep our town tidy are one way to reduce litter, helping create new healthy norms. So we have been working with Keep Swindon Tidy to host a poster making collaboration. Some of these posters will be displayed on signposts in public areas. We urge you, kids and adults alike, to make a poster and help end the culture of littering in Swindon.
Entries can address any aspects of litter, such as avoiding single use plastic, reusable masks, safety for wildlife, taking litter home, using bins... Entries could relate to the whole of Swindon or just to a particular area; for example: Keep our Town Centre tidy or Keep Haydon Wick Tidy.
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.
Many parish councils are supportive of this activity and have agreed to display entries on signposts in public areas / areas of prominent littering.
- School or organisation (optional)
This is an ongoing proect, so there is no closing date planned yet.
We look 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...
