Chocolate Bar Art Competition

Invent your very own flavoured chocolate bar and design its wrapper!

Animate Arts CIC is a brilliant, Faversham based organisation, working to bring communities, schools and people together through creative projects. For 20 years, their inspirational projects have helped thousands of people boost their wellbeing, learn new skills and connect with their local communities.

To mark their 20th birthday, Animate Arts CIC has teamed up with Faversham’s very own chocolate factory Kakawa Artisan Chocolate & Co Ltd, based at Brogdale Farm to create three brand new bars of chocolate to enjoy and help fundraise which will not only support the vital work of Animate Art’s projects, but inspire creativity in all! The three handmade bars will feature as a special edition in Kakawa Artisan Chocolate & Co’s range, each made with different, delicious toppings or inclusions and flavours, beautifully presented in unique and artist illustrated boxes.


Two of the bars will feature artworks by professional artists from Animate Arts CIC, and the third will be created by a local young artist from Swale – the winner of this art competition! This competition is to inspire a new flavour for this milk chocolate bar and to create a matching artwork for the box! This is the ultimate Willy Wonka style, and creative competition.
