Education imps join the Trail!

Following the launch of the Lincoln Imp Trail, 50 more ‘mini’ imps are joining the fun from Saturday, 10 July.

Organised by social enterprise The EBP, the Lincoln Imp Education Trail, run in partnership with Lincoln BIG, St Barnabas, and Wild in Art, takes place alongside this summer’s main Lincoln Imp Trail, and will see sculptures displayed in well-known indoor locations throughout the city from July 10 until September 16.

Primary, secondary and special schools along with colleges and universities, have all taken part in the programme, creating sculptures that rival some of the professional artists. As well as their impressive art and design work, schools have also immersed themselves in learning about our city’s mischievous mascot across a range of subjects using the Trail’s education resource pack.

Michelle Allison, Chief Executive at The EBP said: “Thousands of young people have taken part in designing and painting these amazing sculptures, and it’s been such a positive thing for them to do after such a difficult year. There’s so much creative talent within Lincolnshire and we’re sure the public will be as impressed as we are.”

The Education Trail is sponsored by Bishop Grosseteste University, the University of Lincoln, and Waterside Shopping Centre, and supported by Galliford Try, Lincoln Digs and LiNCHigher.

The following organisations have also supported individual schools to participate in the programme: Affinity Flying Services Ltd, Blankney Estates, LiNCHigher, Lincoln College, Lincolnshire Co-op, McDonald’s (Cathedral Restaurants Limited), North Notts & Lincs Community Rail Partnership, Optima Graphic Design Consultants Ltd, Ruddocks, St Marks Shopping and Waterside Shopping Centre.
