Submissions Open for our Art Exhibition!

Posted:July 1, 2024

The Herts Mind Network Children and Young People’s Team are running a community art exhibition to showcase art created by local young people!

We want to celebrate the creativity of local young people, whilst raising awareness of youth mental health and the services we offer to support local children and young people.

Fancy getting arty over summer and having your art shown to the world?


We are looking for young people aged 11-18 who live and/or go to school in Hertfordshire to submit pieces of art that are inspired by the theme:

 “Healing Nature”

The theme is open to interpretation, so have fun with it!

The artwork you submit could be something you have already made, for example a GCSE Art piece, or something that you make from scratch – why not create something as a summer holiday project!

The exhibition of artwork will take place at:

Bishops Stortford Wellbeing Centre (Sworders Barn Sworders Yard, Bishop’s Stortford CM23 2LD)


Submitting Your Work

Artwork submitted must be the applicants own work.

Artwork can be in any visual medium e.g. painting, drawing, charcoal, painting, photography, sculpture.

To submit your artwork please email [email protected] with Healing Nature as your email subject. Your email will need to include your name, age, a description of your work (no more than 100 words), a photo of your submission and the dimensions of it (height/width).

Submissions are limited to 3 pieces of art per person.
