The City of Sydney’s Pine Street Creative Arts Centre plans specific events and exhibitions each year which provide opportunities for children to participate in and display their valuable and unique creative expressions to a wider community audience. The showcase children’s event in the Pine Street calendar is the WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY Children’s Art Competition and Exhibition.

Open to entries from children aged 5 – 12 years old, this annual competition and exhibition encourages environmental awareness through the arts, with the aim of educating children and their families to integrate sustainable actions into their everyday lives. World Environment Day is not just about recognizing our environment but also about encouraging people to ‘think and be green’.

2014 Competition Theme

World Environment Day is presented by the United Nations Environment Program. The theme for 2014 is THINK, EAT, SAVE – REDUCE YOUR FOOTPRINT. Pine Street has adapted this into this year’s competition theme, which is Sustainable Eating. Foods that come in their natural ‘packaging’ like like bananas and organges, or grow in their natural habitat like Bush Tucker  create less waste. Make an artwork about your favorite natural low waste foods.

Exhibition Launch

The official exhibition launch is on Saturday 7 June, from 1:30pm – 3pm. Announcement of winners will take place at 2pm. We will be serving delicious ‘low waste’ foods and drinks at the event.

Prizes

Each individual age category winner will receive a collection of fine art materials and an art course at Pine Street Creative Arts Centre. All children entering will receive a show bag of goodies and a certificate of achievement.
