Manchester Art Gallery > Collections > Inspired by...

Inspired by... is the V&A's national annual art competition celebrating Adult Learners' Week. It takes place at Manchester Art Gallery, the Victoria & Albert Museum, London and Tyne & Wear Museums, Newcastle upon Tyne.

It is aimed at encouraging adults to visit and take inspiration from works of art in museums and galleries in order to create their own artwork inspired by the collections.

Twenty winners are selected in Manchester and the works are displayed at Manchester Art Gallery and Manchester Central Library. This year's competition winners have their work on display around the gallery next to the work that inspired them from 16 May - 19 July 2009. Runners up have their work displayed at Manchester Central Library.
