ArtReach Competition 2016
The Department would like to thank Professor Jean Michel Massing for having collaborated with the East Cambridgeshire Police force on their newly established ArtReach 2016 competition. This new initiative is aimed at establishing a closer relationship with the community and young people in particular between the ages of 12 and 18 across East Cambridgeshire through art. Children and teenagers in different age categories, including a supportive learning category, were invited to submit their art work for consideration by five judges with a winner appointed in each category. The competition was judged by the following prominent judges: Professor Jean Michel Massing (Department of History of Art), Sir Graham Bright (Police and Crime Commissioner), Cllr Lis Every (Mayor of Ely), DCI Donna Wass , Alex Wood (Chief Constable). The award ceremony was held at King’s School in Ely on Thursday 7 April 2016. Professor Massing gave an inspirational speech about life and the value of art. He encouraged all those who participated in the competition to believe in themselves and their achievements. The winning works of art will be displayed on the walls of the Ely Police Station.
