Colourful Canterbury

We are looking for decorating ideas that can fill community spaces and places, indoors or outdoors, with colour. Ideas that add positivity. From visual ideas to… well anything goes, imagination has no bounds!

At Brewers Decorator Centres in Wincheap, Canterbury are proud to be supporting this project and have offered free paint and decorating materials* to the winning project.

  • You can work as an individual or as a group.
  • You submit a project idea, in any form from a moodboard to a proposal to a mock up via this webpage. 
  • You’ll need to identify where in the Canterbury area your idea would come to life.
  • We are looking for ideas that will last years not weeks. 

It also needs to be able to executed, so painting the Cathedral in rainbow colours would be a little OTT. But decorating bollards in famous artist styles would be ok – they did that in Winchester.

If your idea gets selected you’ll work with locals to make it happen.

No political statements please. See full terms and conditions below.

Deadline – Tuesday 31st March 2020 by midnight | Winner Announced - Saturday 4th April 2020
