Where is your happy place?
An exhibition of children’s work from The Harpur Trust Art Competition
Saturday 16th June to Sunday 26th August

Sir William Harpur Gallery– Entry Free


The Harpur Trust is proud to present this exciting exhibition of work produced by local children and young people aged 4-18 years as part of its biennial Art Competition.  To support the exhibition, the Trust employed a team of working artists to run workshops within 30 borough schools, often working to music to explore the idea of wellbeing and mindfulness.  The result is a colourful and dreamlike display of work conveying their inner most thoughts and feelings.


Competition Judges

Tom Perrett (The Higgins Bedford), Dawn Giles (Bedford Creative Arts), Suresh Dutt (Sculptor and Harpur Trust Grant recipient), Hannah Birkett, (The Arts Society North Bedfordshire).
