Fenland artists will get chance to shine in new railway art competition
Local artists will get the chance to have their work go on show in railway stations and exhibitions in a new art competition celebrating Fenland’s historic railway line. Across our five stations your art work will get to be viewed by millions of people.
The Hereward Community Rail Partnership (CRP), which champions the Hereward Line between Peterborough and Ely and its stations at March, Manea and Whittlesey, has launched an art competition as part of its ten-year anniversary celebrations.
Everyone from budding Picassos to professional artists are being invited to put their creative talents to the test – with winners getting the unique opportunity to have their work displayed online and at railway stations, venues and exhibitions along the Hereward line and further afield in partnership with railway industry organisations.
The challenge is to create a piece of artwork that celebrates the Hereward Line and captures what people can see, visit and experience, all through travelling by train in Fenland. It could be inspired by the unique Fenland landscape and heritage, rail travel or stations, or even the communities and destinations along the line.
