What is Village Art

Village Art offers students of all ages the chance to create and submit artwork, to be displayed on the walls of the athletes' rooms in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Village.

Over 500 Aussie athletes will compete on the world’s biggest sporting stage and this is your chance to brighten up their rooms - show your support and inspire our Team to do the best they can!

Our athletes love these artworks, they provide a connection to home and messages of support like no other.

Educators can use the following lesson plans to run this activity in the classroom:




How It Works

What you need to do

  • Download lesson plans
  • Get creative - create the art pieces in your classroom and take photos of the students hard at work
  • Submit the final work by 4 June 2021, along with a completed consent form. Post artwork to: Village Art, Community Engagement, Australian Olympic Committee, Level 4 - Museum of Contemporary Art, 140 George Street, Sydney, NSW 2000

Next steps

  • Artwork received by the AOC by the closing date will be flown to Tokyo and mounted onto the walls of the athletes' rooms on the Olympic Village. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that all artwork will be mounted onto the walls.
  • Post the student photos and good luck messages on social media - tag @AUSOlympicTeam and use #TokyoTogether
