Film Competition

Film Competition thumbnail


The aim of this competition is to encourage children, young people and families who live in Barnsley to consider what it was like to grow up in a family connected to one of Barnsley’s principal industries at a time when the industry concerned was economically significant in Barnsley. In particular, we would like entrants to consider what it was like for a child or young person coming from an industrial background who wanted to ‘break the mould’ and become an artist.
