Glowing Thursday 10th November 2011
Forest Pitch – football strip design competition!
Join us on 10th November at 11am on Glow TV!
An opportunity to meet Scottish artist Craig Coulthard, creator of the highly innovative art project Forest Pitch. Funded by Creative Scotland and part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad, Forest Pitch will culminate in two football matches between amateur players who have recently taken up British citizenship. At the Scottish Learning Festival in September this year Craig launched a football strip design competition for primary age children to come up with exciting and innovative designs for the football strips that the players will wear.
As an arts project, Forest Pitch encourages debate about national identity, citizenship, the natural world, sustainability and participation in sport.
If you have already signed up for the competition or are thinking about doing so, then join us for this exciting Glowing Thursday to find out more and get some artist’s tips and advice.
