c21 Theatre Company Competition: Cover illustration needed for ‘The Reminiscence Poems’ Booklet – closing 26 Feb (EXTENDED)

A beautiful collection of poems, stories and images will be published in March 2021. The collection of work started out as ‘Through the Glass’, The Reminiscence Project 2020, a collaboration between c21 Theatre Company, activity co-ordinators and residents/ service users in residential and day care settings. We interacted with day care settings across four council areas in Northern Ireland.

The Project culminated in the production of a series of short theatrical films which showcased the wonderful, shared memories of our older people and were released on c21 Theatre Company’s YouTube channel in late 2020.


c21 is looking for a cover illustration; something that catches attention yet is simple, original, and interesting.

c21 is still thinking of possible titles for the collection. Your illustration should consider the suggested titles below:

  • Retelling Our Stories
  • Sharing Stories of/from Our Past
  • Memories from a Good Life
  • Memory Box Stories
  • Our Lives, Our Voices, Our Words


Extended Deadline: 12 noon on Friday 26th February 2021.


The winner will be announced on social media after the closing date. The lucky person will receive a £25 book voucher, credit in the booklet and a copy.
