PAISLEY YOUTH ARTS FESTIVAL NEEDS YOU!
DESIGN COMPETITION LAUNCHED TO CREATE IDENTITY FOR THE EVENT
A design competition has been launched to create the visual style for the inaugural Paisley Youth Arts Festival (PYAF) 2019 which will take place in Paisley town centre, from 1-15th September 2019.
Targeted at young people from the age of 5 – 25, the festival will feature exciting events including: fringe theatre shows; music gigs and open mic nights; a gaming and film zone; workshops on music; art; gaming; a food offering and much more! The full programme will be launched in August 2019.
Following on from last month’s Youth Consultation event at The Wynd, festival organisers are reaching out to young people in the local community to enter the competition. The young designer’s artwork will be used throughout the festival and will be included in posters; brochures and merchandise. The brief is to come up with a catchy name for the festival; design of a festival logo and an A3 or A4 poster, which should be colourful and eye-catching.
Local arts organisations involved in the festival include: Brick Lane Studios; Create Paisley; Erskine Music and Media; Loud n Proud; Outspoken Arts Scotland; PACE; Renfrewshire Leisure and University of West of Scotland (UWS).
Steven Thomson, Creative Director, Outspoken Arts Scotland, commented: “This is a great opportunity for a young designer, under the age of 25, to create the visual style for the festival they would want to see and visit. We want those who enter to take inspiration from what’s going to be in the programme and put their own creative spin on it.”
The winner will see their work on the front cover of festival brochures and posters and will receive £100 and a free festival pass, six runners up will receive a free festival pass.
