About Us: Paisley

The About Us competition invites young people aged 4 to 18 across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to enter a poem or animation Scratch project – or to enter both – around the theme of ‘connectivity and the universe’ reflecting on the many ways in which life across the universe is interwoven.

The winning entries will be featured in bespoke multimedia installations that will accompany a spectacular live projection mapping show that will tour the UK in Spring 2022 and the poems will also be published in a dedicated digital anthology.
Alongside the UK-wide competition, young people from each of these locations will also be invited to participate in extra activities exploring their creativity.


About Us

About Us is a large-scale public event for all ages that combines live shows and multimedia installations to tell the story of the infinite ways in which we are connected to the universe, natural world, and one another from the Big Bang to the present day.
