How would you like to see your artwork or photograph featured in an exhibition at the Charlton Kings Autumn Fayre, and be in with a chance of winning one of twelve fantastic prizes?

As part of the CK Futures 'We Are Nature' campaign that has been running this summer, we are excited to launch a competition for children and young people. There are four age categories: under 6, 6 – 9 yrs, 10 – 13 yrs and 14 – 18 yrs, in both photography and art.

To enter the competition, we need you to create a piece of art or a photograph that interprets the theme of 'Nature'. The piece of art can be a painting, a collage, a drawing or a sculpture.

All entries will be displayed in the Kings Hall as part of the Autumn Fayre on Saturday 24th September, and a winner and a runner up will be chosen from each age category – for both art and for photography – on the day of the fayre by photographer Claire Westaway.

Entries close at 2pm, Wednesday 21st September 2022. The winner will be announced at the Autumn Fayre, and then winners will be notified by email by 8th October 2022.

CK Futures Film Screening of "2040"

CK Futures Film Screening of "2040"

Fri, 30 Sep 2022 19:00

Join us in the Stanton Hall in Charlton Kings to see the powerful and inspiring environmental film 2040, being screened by CK Futures as part of The Great Big Green Week.

This free showing is bought to you in collaboration with Cheltenham Borough Council.

While many environmental films focus on the damage being done to the planet that threatens human existence, this documentary-style film 2040 focuses instead on solutions.

Award-winning director Damon Gameau (That Sugar Film) embarks on a journey to explore what the future could look like by the year 2040 if we simply embraced the best solutions already available to us to improve our planet and shifted them rapidly into the mainstream.

Structured as a visual letter to his 4-year-old daughter, Damon blends traditional documentary with dramatised sequences and high-end visual effects to create a vision board of how these solutions could regenerate the world for future generations.

Motivated by concerns about the planet his 4-year-old daughter would inherit, Damon embarked on a global journey to meet innovators and changemakers in the areas of economics, technology, civil society, agriculture, education and sustainability. Drawing on their expertise, he sought to identify the best solutions, available to us now, that would help improve the health of our planet and the societies that operate within it. From marine permaculture to decentralised renewable energy projects, he discovered that people all over the world are taking matters into their own hands.

This journey is the central premise for the documentary '2040', a story of hope that looks at the very real possibility that humanity could reverse global warming and improve the lives of every living thing in the process. It is a positive vision of what 'could be', instead of the dystopian future we are so often presented.

The film is being screened on Friday 30th September at the Stanton Hall on Church Piece, Church Road, Charlton Kings, Cheltenham, GL53 8AR. Doors open at 7.00pm (refreshments available) and the film will begin at 7.30pm. There will be a discussion about the film afterwards.

This is a free event hosted by CK Futures, a Charlton Kings Parish Council Initiative.

You can book this event free via Eventbrite.
