Inspired by youth led activism amidst concern for the environment and climate change Incinerator Gallery invites Moonee Valley school students to enter their art or design posters into the Bright Sparks 2021 poster exhibition. Posters will be displayed at Incinerator Gallery during summer.

This year the theme is environment. Students may submit works that express their thoughts, concerns or love for the world we live in.

Posters may be created from any medium, for example; paint, felt tipped pens, ink, photograph, digital print to name a few. Collaged artworks must be able to withstand handling and storage without elements falling off. Pastel or charcoal works must have been sprayed with fixative so not to smudge.

Posters will be displayed in Boadle Hall at Incinerator Gallery from Friday, 10 December 2021 to Sunday, 16 January 2022.

Selected posters will also be displayed throughout Moonee Valley City Council venues during 2022. Venues may include: Clocktower Café, Crown Street Stables, Ascot Vale Library and Avondale Heights Library.
