KATS: North East Combined Authority Competition Winners Artworks Displayed at Newcastle Gallery

In March 2024 we launched the KATS: North East Combined Authority competition in the search to find our next Climate Change Champions! This competition encouraged children from the 12 schools that we have worked with over the past year to create an ‘artistic masterpiece’ that communicated the message of the dangers of plastic pollution in our oceans.

The Top 10 were carefully selected by a team of climate change experts at North East Combined Authority and Newcastle University. These artworks were then displayed at the Water Security and Sustainable Development Hub’sWater and People‘ exhibition that ran over the Easter holidays at Newcastle Arts Centre.

The children were absolutely thrilled to have their artworks displayed to the public, and they even got a chance to go and view them in person. On the final day of the exhibition, members of the public were invited to vote on their favourite artworks…results to come soon!
