Discover Arts Award at Estuary 2021

Young festival goers are invited to achieve their Discover Arts Award with Estuary 2021.
Visit any of our festival hubs to collect a logbook.

Share your own estuary inspired artworks, explore your thoughts and feelings about the artworks you experience and get creative with your friends / family!

Once you've completed your short logbook, hand it in to a member of our festival team (look for the blue fleeces) so we can send you a certificate in the post, along with your work to keep.

We'd love to see your artworks online too - share them with @EstuaryFestival

Schools and community groups are invited to take part. For more information, get in touch with your nearest Estuary 2021 contact :
