A youth project to find out more about how you're spending lockdown.

If you're a young person living in Oxfordshire (aged between 13-25) Oxfordshire Discovery College want to hear from you! They want to know what your experience of lockdown and the pandemic is, through a creative way.

What can I create?

There are lots of different way that you can express your experience of lockdown visually. You could:

  • Produce a painting 
  • Create a sculpture or collage
  • Take photographs
  • Do some sketching
  • Write a journal, song lyrics, poem or even letters!
  • Create a short story

Is there any theme that I should focus on?

There is no theme that you should stick to but if you're stuck for ideas you could focus on:

  • You mental health
  • What you, your family or housemates are doing to pass the time
  • Your thoughts on how it's affecting the planet or community
  • Things you're noticing about where you live

How do I submit my work?

You can send your work digitally by scanning or taking a photo of your work and sending it to hello@oxfordshirediscovery.co.uk with 'Youth in Lockdown' in the subject. You could also send it by post to Elmore, 213 Barns Road, Oxford, OX4 3UT. Make sure to put 'FAO Discovery College: Youth in Lockdown‘ on the envelope. Please note: If you send in your work through the post it may take some extra time to be received.

What information must I include with my submission?

  • Your age
  • Roughly where in the county you live (i.e. Abingdon)
  • Any information that you'd like to about your artwork.
