The ORIGINS Project is wanting to capture the feelings and hopes about the world and the future of WA families and ORIGINS participants, in particular our little people, through art.
We are inviting families to submit drawings or works of art from their child/children that depict their thoughts on being involved in ORIGINS, how they are feeling about the world, their idea of health and happiness, and their wishes for the future.
Specifically, we are asking kids to ‘draw or create’ their thoughts on one of the following:
What is your favourite thing about being part of ORIGINS? (If you are an ORIGINS participant)
Draw a picture of you helping other kids stay happy and healthy.
Along with your submission, please also complete the e-consent form, found by clicking here, giving us permission to display the artwork publicly.
Submissions will go into a random draw to win a $150 e-voucher.
Your child’s artwork will be included in a virtual exhibition for the international inVIVO Planetary Health Conference 2021 - led by ORIGINS Co-Director Professor Susan Prescott - which will take place virtually in December. Find out more about the conference here.
Submissions will also be eligible for a children’s art prize, which is being offered through InVIVO.
Parents, carers and grandparents are also invited to submit their own depiction of their answers to the above questions, following the steps above to submit their entry.
ENTRIES CLOSE: 10 NOVEMBER
