What is the The Irene Phelps Youth Art Competition and Exhibition?

The Irene Phelps Art Competition and Exhibition is for youth aged 10 to 25 interested in revealing their artistic talents through photography, drawing and painting.
The contest is designed to encourage competitors to explore and share their mental health and wellbeing stories through the theme Exploring Gravity; what weighs them down, what keeps them grounded, and what inspires them.
Hosted by the West Tamar Council with support from YAC West Tamar, Beaconsfield Men's Shed and West Tamar Rotary, we invite local young people to get their creative on, enter their artwork and explore gravity!
