RSPB NI, in partnership with TEDxStormont Countdown, National Museums NI in partnership with Urban Scale Interventions, and renowned Visual Artist Colin Davidson, is calling on aspiring artists to join us and create for nature.

Competition theme

Could you paint for nature, crochet for climate or sculpt for sustainability?

We are calling on artists of all ages and abilities to share their vision for the future of Northern Ireland; a vision rich in nature and free from climate change.

RSPB NI is working hard to raise awareness and find solutions to the nature and climate emergency both here in Northern Ireland and across the globe.

Throughout history big changes have been made by small groups of passionate people making their voices heard for a cause they believe in – one of the most effective ways to do this is through artistic expression.

This competition builds on the idea of activist art, a term used to describe art that is grounded in the act of ‘doing’ to address political or social issues.

The winners of the competition will be named RSPB NI Artist of the Year and RSPB NI Young Artists of the year in each youth category on the 21st of August.

The winning artworks will be exhibited at TEDxStormont Countdown in November 2021 and in an exhibition at Banana Block – an exciting new collaborative project from National Museums NI, Urban Scale Interventions and Portview Trade Centre

The nature and climate emergency is the defining issue of our time. This is a pivotal year for nature in the UK with COP26, a crucial global summit on the climate crisis, being held in Glasgow in November and that is why we want you to ‘canvas’ for nature by showing us your vision for the future of Northern Ireland.

We want to give a platform to a range of voices showing those in power why they should address the nature and climate emergency before it’s too late.

If you believe in this too, help us to Revive Our World, by sharing your vision of a better Northern Ireland, free from the threat of nature loss and climate change.
