Children and families in Worcestershire are being invited to take part in Islands in the Sky, a new online #CreativeConnections arts project. Severn Arts and Worcestershire County Council have selected 20 Worcestershire artists to be part of #CreativeConnections which is a new initiative where each artist is receiving a small grant to create a piece of work in response to our current situation and which can be shared digitally.
Artist Andrew James Round is working on his project called Islands in the Sky. He is creating a game where you can explore a series of interconnected islands floating above the city of Worcester. These islands will be made up of rooms created by children and their families from Worcestershire and the surrounding areas. Players will be rewarded as they explore.
Andrew would like the rooms/islands in the maze to be designed by other people and so has created templates for children and families to add their designs to. Information about the project along with instructions about how to create a room design and the templates can be downloaded below. It would be great if you and your children could get involved. The deadline for artwork is 15 May 2020 and the plan is for the completed game to be available to play at the end of May.
The more designs we get the better!
Here’s an example of a completed room design:
