FIEC / CA 2019
15th Congress of the Fédération internationale des associations d'études classiques and the Classical Association annual conference 2019

Artefact to Art: children’s art inspired by antiquity

Drama Studio, Institute of Education

Free exhibition for the duration of the Conference


The Artefact to Art competition encourages children to create artworks (visual art, poems, and short stories) inspired by objects from classical antiquity. We will be exhibiting a selection of this artwork at the CA-FIEC conference.

Our exhibition at the CA annual meeting last year, held at the University of Leicester, included items selected from hundred of entries sent in from across four continents. This year, we look forward to displaying an equally broad range of works, showcasing some brilliant new works created by exciting young talent. Come along to the exhibition, and see the future creativity of our discipline!

The exhibition will be available to view, free of charge, throughout the conference.
