Calling all creative souls! Are you an aspiring poet? A graffiti
artist? A graphic designer? A dab hand with a camera? Get your
paintbrush, ipad, camera or notebook out and show us
what Reading means to you.
We are collecting art, photos, poems and words so that we can
encapsulate what Reading means to you to create our community mural
ensemble. The finished mural will be a large-scale piece of art on the
front wall of the RUSU building, facing Palmer Quad.
This mural will inform artistic interpretations of what Reading
embodies to students, staff, and those in the local community.
You do not need to be a skilled artist or have artistic knowledge to
be part of this community mural project - it’s open to all abilities!
As it is multimedia, you can send photos, words, poems, drawings and
any designs about what Reading means to you.
The three best designs will be individually placed in the RUSU
building and whoever enters will have a chance to win an Amazon Alexa
Echo Dot 8th Generation.
Interested? Please see the
before getting stuck into your masterpiece!
The deadline for the submission date is
Friday 7th May 2021
