10 Commandments for the 21st Century
As part of celebrations of the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, children across the UK are invited to enter a competition to consider how the 10 Commandments might be adapted for the 21st Century.
To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, the University and the National Centre for Early Music is running a printmaking project with a number of primary schools in York.
The children's artwork, inspired by the woodcuts in the King James Bible, will be on display at the National Centre for Early Music during the York Early Music Festival (8-16 July) and subsequently at the exhibition, 'A Book Fit for a King' at the Old Palace, York Minster.
