Invitation for Schools to get involved in the Games
We want to engage children and young people in the Games and help get the conversation started about organ donation.
We hope that the two opportunities outlined below would be of interest.
Call out to Schools for World Transplant Games Art Programme
We are inviting expressions of interest from schools to take part in a schools’ programme led by Northern Print. The programme of activity is devised for KS2 through to KS4 and will be delivered over 3 days. Workshops will introduce the themes of organ donation and transplantation, look at visual imagery and develop ideas and texts to develop into prints, preparing and making screens and blocks and a final day of printing. A selection of the final printed materials will be used in marketing and communications activity for the World Transplant Games and works will feature in an exhibition. Find out more.
World Transplant Games Mascot Competition
We are challenging schools and young people from our region to use their creativity and imagination to create a one-of-a-kind mascot for the Games. Mascots are a fun way of engaging communities in an event or campaign – see Stephen Seahorse and friends! The winning design would be made into a mascot costume and will become the official mascot for the Games. The mascot would play a role in ceremonies and events and will featuring in marketing and communications activities prior to, during and after the Games. More information here.
