The International Youth Arts Festival invites you and anyone between the ages of 5 and 26 years to take part in this year's international postcard swap: ‘Let Me Introduce Myself’
Take a piece of postcard sized card (15cm x 10.5cm) and be creative with any material you can think of be it oil paint, ink, dried pasta, buttons, pictures and introduce yourself to the world! You may also like to add some writing to your piece. Think about what represents you.
Your artwork will be exhibited during this year’s International Youth Arts Festival, Kingston-upon-Thames 29th June- 6th July 2012 and also online at
After the exhibition you will receive a different postcard back (or a selection of cards if you send us more than one) from somewhere else around the world.
This project is a great opportunity to share something about yourself, your home, surroundings, personality and emotions with thousands of other young people. This is also a fantastic school or group project where students can work together.
For all the details and the postcards from last year's project go to www.schoolswaps.net
We want your postcard to include your name, age and country. Please write these clearly on your postcard when you introduce yourself. When sending, put the postcard in an envelope and enclose your full name and address on a separate piece of paper and send it to us at: IYAF c/o Arts Office • Guildhall 2 • Kingston upon-Thames • Surrey • KT1 1EU
