G20 gives students a chance to show talent

IPSWICH students will be given the opportunity to show off their artistic talents as part of the up-coming G20 Cultural Celebrations.

The Children's Art Project will involve primary school children from schools across south-east Queensland, who will be creating artwork based on their interpretation of self-identity and their individual place in the community.

Artwork will range from mosaic, wearable art, print making, 3D collage work to spray-painted pieces and African-inspired art.

Residents and visitors to Brisbane will see the G20 through the eyes of local school students as part of the Children's Billboard Project, on display throughout the city and suburbs during the event's Cultural Celebrations.

Education Minister John-Paul Langbroek said primary school children from 21 schools would work with artists from not-for-profit organisation Hands on Art to create original artworks inspired by G20 themes that would go on display at shopping centres.

"Participating students are developing a range of individual artworks incorporating G20 curriculum themes that will be digitised and shown across the city," Mr Langbroek said.

The artworks can be viewed across Brisbane and suburban shopping centres from October 24 to November 16.
