POW! Festival - Inspiring Windows
1st February - 8th March 2021
Until Monday 8th March
To celebrate International Women’s Day, we are inviting everyone to come together to create a huge Thanet-wide art gallery of inspirational women - in our windows!
To get involved, draw a woman who inspires you. She could be Beyonce, Emmeline Pankhurst, Kamala Harris, Virginia Woolf, Greta Thunberg, your mum, your sister - any woman who you think is absolutely amazing!
Here at POW! we believe everyone is an artist, so get out your pens, pencils, paints, collage materials or any other medium that you enjoy using, and get creative.
Once you’ve finished your drawing, hang them in your window for everyone who passes by to enjoy, and then share a photo of your artwork in your window on social media with the hashtag #PowThanetWindows
If you’re still going to school or work, you could also ask if you could hang your drawings of inspirational women in the windows there. Remember to share your artworks on social media so people can be inspired from all over Thanet and beyond!
We would love to read more about your inspirational women, so when you share your artwork on social media, if you would like to do include a little information about the inspirational women you choose and why you find them so awesome.
Everyone is welcome to get involved. Let's enjoy seeing wonderful women celebrated in windows everywhere this International Women's Day.
A little guidance:
- Your artwork should be on an A4 piece of paper.
- Share a photo of the artwork on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #PowThanetWindows written in the post and tag @PowThanet so we can see it too!
- If you want to you can also write a little about why they are amazing when you share your artwork on social media.
- Make sure you get permission from the person who owns the window before you hang your artwork in it.
You can download a frame to print and create your artwork within if you’d like to! Have fun with it! Happy creating, everyone!
