Logo Competition Launched take pART 11

We’ve got some brilliant news for budding artists as they are being invited to design a new logo for the largest arts, science and literature festival for children and young people in North Wales.

take pART, held annually at Venue Cymru, Llandudno, will celebrate its 10th birthday in January 2019. To mark the occasion, the festival’s organisers are inviting young artists to create a new logo.

The competition is for anyone aged 18 and under and the winner will see their artwork turned into a graffiti logo which will be used on all promotional materials for the festival the following year.

take pART 10 will be held on 12 and 13 January and is aimed at 0 to 18-year-olds and their families. There will be hundreds of individual workshops, drop-in sessions, masterclasses and performances taking place under Venue Cymru’s roof.

The festival is mainly free of charge to join in, as it aims to encourage people from all walks of life to participate without the normal barrier of cost preventing them from attending.

Andy ‘Dime One’ Birch, renowned graffiti artist and teacher, will be leading workshops/drop in sessions on the Saturday of the festival, focusing on designing take pART logos/characters. He will also work with the winner of the competition to develop their idea into a logo for use in 2020. The winner also gets a personalised piece of work to keep.

A spokesperson for Venue Cymru said: “This is a great opportunity to get designing a brilliant new logo for Venue Cymru’s take pART festival.

“This will give you chance to use your graffiti skills to create some awesome letters and cool characters. The winner will get the chance to create a custom piece of graffiti work in a workshop with Dime One, and also see their logo used for the Take pART logo. So grab your pencils, pens, colours (or tablet!) and get designing!”
