Lubaina Himid, Dream Team, 2014, 48 x 67, cm Acrylic on canvas. Courtesy of the artist and Hollybush Gardens.

Lubaina Himid’s work Dream Team imagines a world when there will be more women in powerful positions in business and politics. She believes that this dream can become a reality if we all use our right to vote and participate in elections.

Think about how art can be used to encourage young people to vote and take an interest in politics and global issues such as gender equality. Create an image that does this in a form of your choice. This could be drawing, painting or a digital artform.
