Create original digital artwork and share it with your friends, family and the rest of the world!
We invite you to join them in thinking about the various ways that Truce can be understood and identified in all of our lives.
What is a Truce?
A Truce can mean many things - shaking hands, calling a halt to hostilities, putting down arms – but at heart it is about pausing and reflecting on what is really important.
Take inspiration from events in your own life, your favourite movies, comics, books or video games and create your own artwork which will be displayed on the Truce Art Project online gallery.
Get your work displayed on public screens
Entries submitted by Monday 24th September will be considered for inclusion in our video package to be displayed on public screens around the UK in the run up to the Olympics.
Becoming a Truce artist is simple
All you have to do is look at the Resources page (which will give you step by step instructions on how to create your artwork), then go to the Submit Artwork page and upload your work to the Truce Arts Gallery.
You will then be a Truce Artist!
A core part of the Olympics and Paralympics is competing countries signing-up to a Truce during the games. The Truce Arts project, led by A New Direction and the Creative Intelligence Agency, uses this as a starting point for artists and young people to produce artwork which expresses the values of Truce in everyday life.
Artists Janette Parris, Grennan & Sperandio and Soda are working with young people across London to create artwork that expresses the ideas of Truce and can be shared across digital media. Animations, digital stills and videos will be screened on BBC Live Sites across the UK, on Bus-Tops around London and online in the lead up to and during the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.
