'It's Our World' at Waterloo
It’s Our World, the UK's largest art project celebrating the environment and promoting sustainability, launched with JCDecaux this morning (5th June 2014) at Waterloo Station. The mass participation arts project gives children and young people in the UK a voice to speak out for positive environmental action.
Launched on UN World Environment Day, the experiential campaign, with JCDecauxLive, featured an art class led by young artist Zoom Rockman and run by City & Guilds Art School where pupils from the local Oasis Academy were invited to illustrate their local landscape in the middle of the Station concourse. Providing inspiration for the pupils, footage of the Waterloo skyline was deployed on JCDecaux’s Motion@Waterloo screen.
The aim of the It’s Our World project is to create the largest online gallery of artwork celebrating the environment as seen through the age of its future custodians aged 4-19 years. Mostly driven through schools, participants are invited to create artwork that brings their local landscape or neighbourhood to life.
The closing date for submissions will be May 2015. For further information and details on how to take part visit www.itisourworld.org.
