What colours do you think of when you think of Cornwall? Is it the intense cobalt blue of the sea at Carbis Bay? Or a riot of red poppies on West Pentire Headland? Or maybe even the golden brown of the crust of a pasty?
Tate St Ives would love to work with you to create a Colour Palette of Cornwall; a palette filled with colours associated with the people, places and things that characterise this beautiful county.
The hashtag #ColoursofCornwall will create a digital colour palette – but Tate St Ives will also shortlist their favourite ideas resulting in a final Tate ‘Colours of Cornwall’ poster.
How to take part
- Think of a colour that makes you think of Cornwall
- Take a photograph, make a fun gif, or instagram story to sum it up
- Give the colour a fun title for the colour pallet – think of it like a paint chard – where possible use the colour in the title for example ‘St Ives Bay Blue’ & ‘Jam First Red’
- The colour could evoke a memory, nature, an object, favourite food and drink…. be as creative as you like
- Share on your social media feeds
- Tag Tate St Ives in your photos, gifs, and stories @TateStIves #ColoursofCornwall
- Share us in your e-newsletter
Closing date for entries to be considered for the poster is Friday 31 July.
