Youth Visual Art Exhibition – Our Climate: Growing up in a Changing World

In Collaboration with the National Centre for Resilience, Shambellie House is asking for visual art submissions from young people aged 16 – 30. Selected entries will be displayed in an exhibition here at the House.

The National Centre for Resilience works with Scotland’s Universities, Researchers, Policy Makers, Emergency Responders, Volunteers & Communities to build Scotland’s resilience to natural hazards, including the threat posed by Climate Change.

We want to host a varied, insightful, and though-provoking exhibition on the theme Our Climate: Growing up in a Changing World. We welcome any form of visual art created in any medium – be that paintings, drawings, photographs collage, or anything else your mind can conjure, as long as it can be easily delivered to and displayed. We particularly encourage entries using sustainable mediums such as digital artwork and/or creating artwork using sustainably sourced natural materials i.e. plant inks or paints, cyanotype images etc.

Please read the Terms & Conditions carefully:

Entries must be sent as a high resolution digital image to on or before the 22nd of September 2023.

Thirty images will be selected for the final exhibition. The exhibition will run from the 11th – 14th October. Please read the Terms and Conditions for further details on making your submission.

Entrants will hear back regarding selection on the week beginning 4th September. Entrants MUST be aged between 16 – 30 years.

Any queries regarding the exhibition should be directed to, or you can contact Shambellie by phone on 01387 440082.
