#KickArt Challenge

Kick Art Challenge is a new project launching to encourage our children and young people to take part in a fun, exciting online-based social competition which focusses on getting active and being creative while at home during the Coronavirus lockdown.

We aim to engage participants by combining art with health & fitness through football – and link everything up with interesting international footballing cultures as our main overarching themes, so that we can continually evolve the competition every fortnight and explore other countries across the world through art and sport.

We understand that many families are challenged to find ways to keep busy and enjoy shared activities as well as sparking their imagination away from the TV, computer games and daily schoolwork.

On the other hand, this time also presents a valuable opportunity to promote ways for families to enjoy spending that time well by working with one another and have fun while they’re doing it. So, we’ll challenge these young people to stay connected online by sharing ideas, artwork and clips of their best footballing abilities. We aim for this to spread right across the Liverpool City Region.

Round 1 – Brazil

In the first round, to win a traditional Brazilian street soccer (futsal) ball or Neymar Brazil kit, that will arrive at your doorstep, all you need to do is…

  1. Produce a colourful, vibrant poster of your favourite parts of Brazilian life – whether it’s a people, places, culture, nature or footballing hero. Take a picture of it when you’re done, ready to send in!
  2. Or get your parents or guardian to go outside with you and take a quick video (less than 30 seconds) that shows us your best tricks and football skills. Whether it’s keepy-ups, trick shots or moves that Ronaldinho would be proud of…
  3. Fill out a quick 1-minute application form so we know where to deliver your futsal football if you win. You can find it here
  4. Go online to Facebook and submit your poster and football skills video by posting into our #KickArtChallenge group
  5. We’ll pick our winners on 17th May.
