Sefton Schools Art Competition
The Atkinson is a cultural destination for tourists, visitors and residents and aims to bring the
very best in arts and culture to the North West. In particular, encouraging and nurturing
creativity in children and young people is at the heart of our mission at The Atkinson.
Working in partnership with NADFAS, The Atkinson is hosting an open art competition for
schools in Sefton to create an exciting opportunity for young people to showcase their work
