​UK schools are being invited to join the fight against racism, prejudice and hate by taking part in the annual Arts and Minds competition.

The competition encourages pupils from primary, special and secondary schools to create pieces of writing and art to deliver messages of equality and cultural diversity.

It is run by the NASUWT and is supported by a range of organisations, including the Anne Frank Trust UK and Headteacher Update.

The competition is an opportunity to discuss and explore diversity and community cohesion with students, using art and creative writing. It has been running now for more than 10 years and during this time students have been creative in the media they have used – including poems, stories, digital artwork, photography and collages.

For 2018, NASUWT would like students to explore themes of diversity, race, equality and identity. Entries are particularly encouraged to mark the 70th anniversary this year of the arrival of the SS Empire Windrush generation – migrant workers who made a significant contribution to our health and other public services and to the manufacturing industries.
