Talk as part of Local History Month 2016.
To celebrate the 100th birthday of the Transporter Bridge, why not create your very own masterpiece of the Transporter Bridge.
As part of the birthday celebrations, mima has teamed up with Evening Gazette to launch the 'My Transporter Bridge Competition.' Let your imagination run wild and create a design incorporating Teesside's much loved grade II-listed landmark bridge.
A panel of judges including Kate Brindley, mima director; Charlotte Wood, founder member of mima’s The Modern Times group; Karen McLauchlan, deputy business and features editor at the Evening Gazette; Andy Preston, chairman at Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Foundation; Dave Allan, author, and Stephen Gill, artist, have been tasked with choosing three winning designs and a handful of favourites from your creations.
Three lucky winners will have their work displayed in mima, beautifully framed and labelled and will also receive a great mima goody bag. Along with the three winners, a handful of favourite designs will also be displayed in a special exhibition in November at mima followed by a My Transporter Bridge souvenir supplement in the Evening Gazette.
mima’s artist-designed colouring sheets have proved popular at mima and are currently displayed in Centre Space, an area for mima visitors of all ages to draw, colour and play. Your colouring sheet needs to be a line drawing that we can reprint for others to colour in, on a white square piece of paper no bigger than 42cm square.
Groups, families or individuals will have plenty of fun with the 3D category. From knitted bridges and junk sculptures to good old-fashioned matchstick building, why not have a go. No size restriction. (Please submit photographs only of your work/sculpture. Mima will not except 3D original works).
Put all your talents to the test with this category and get creative using a range of materials and techniques. There’s no size or material restrictions. Have a go at drawing, painting, photography - or any other creative method that takes your fancy. (Original hard copies only please)
Alternatively entry forms are available from mima reception. All entries should be submitted by 4pm on Saturday 29th October to mima reception.
