Have you ever been inspired by a book? What will happen if you take a book you've read to the next level? Hertfordshire libraries are challenging 10-18 year olds to do just that with ImagiNation this summer!
ImagiNation is an arts and reading project designed with the help of young people. Anyone aged 10-18 can take part and all they need to do is borrow 2 library books, collect an ImagiNation book band and get reading!
With ImagiNation, the end of the book is just the start of the story - the next challenge is to write or draw on the book band to inspire others to read it. Then wrap it around the book for others to discover. You can also create a piece of artwork inspired by one of the books to upload onto the secure ImagiNation blog. The blog can be found at http://imaginationeast.org.uk/.
The artwork could be:
•a drawing, collage or painting
•a photograph or film
•a sculpture, model or design
•a poem or fan fiction
•a piece of music or a play
•any other art form!
Everyone who completes an ImagiNation book band and brings it in to a library to show us will be awarded a certificate. Participants will also be entered into a prize draw to win one of 3 Amazon vouchers worth up to £70!
In addition, 2 free digital story making workshops for 10-14 year olds will take place at Hemel Hempstead and Bishop’s Stortford Libraries on 16th August. Using Scratch coding and circuit boards, learn how to make your stories come to life with lights and sounds.
Book your free workshop place now.
ImagiNation runs from 14th July - 8th September 2018.
