Inspired By

Inspired By is an annual art competition, celebrating Adult Learners’ Week and Museums & Galleries Month which aims to encourage adults to visit and take inspiration from works of art in museums and galleries in order to create their own art work.

Celebrating Adult Learners’ Week and Museums & Galleries Month, the competition takes place at Manchester Art Gallery, Victoria & Albert Museum London and Tyne & Wear Museums Newcastle upon Tyne.

Inspired By was first held in Manchester in 2005 and we received over 100 entries.
Of these, 16 works of art were selected and displayed at Manchester Art Gallery and Manchester Central Library. We are hoping to inspire many more people in 2006.

Who can enter the competition?

Any adult learners, 19 years of age and over, at all stages of learning.

  • Learners attending any course in an adult, community or further education setting, on both accredited and non-accredited courses.
  • Learners who use Manchester Art Gallery or other venues in a self-directed way.

How do I apply?

Please send the following information to: Diane Rushbrook, Business Support Administrator, MLA North West, The Malt Building, Wilderspool Park, Greenall’s Avenue, Warrington, WA4 6HL; no later than Friday 3 March 2006.

  • A completed application form.
  • A good quality photograph of your art work.
  • 2 single sided A4 sheets of supporting drawings and photographs about the creation of your art work.

Please do not send in more supporting material than this. We cannot accept sketchbooks or material in any other format.

Please write your name on ALL pieces of information you send in.
