Arts and Minds competition helps schools to tackle prejudice and promote diversity

The popular annual Arts and Minds Awards are once again helping schools to tackle issues of racism and prejudice and promote diversity and equality – and entries are open now.

The creative writing and art competition is open to primary, secondary and special schools and is organised by the NASUWT teaching union and supported by SecEd.

Individual students or groups are invited to enter art work or pieces of creative writing exploring themes of cultural diversity, race, equality and identity. Entries should reflect the competition’s aims to promote cultural diversity and equality and tackle racism in schools.

Children and young people can explore ways of expressing what diversity, equality and identity means to them and how this is reflected in their lives, families, schools and communities.

Once again, television presenter Gok Wan will be choosing the overall winner in the 2015 competition, with the national finals to be held on October 14 in central London.
