From April 2011 Arcola, alongside Hackney and Tower Hamlets Friends of the Earth group, are hosting a series of ï»¿ï»¿ï»¿monthly, expert-led talks around exciting and challenging aspects of sustainability. Our overaraching theme is innovation, and tangible solutions to the sustainability issues of both today and tomorrow.
For an overview of the series of talks, please see HERE. They take place on the last Thursday of each month, from 6 â€“ 7.30pm, at Arcola TheatreÂ ï»¿
Our first speaker on 28 April is Sue Riddlestone, of BioRegional.Â Â Information coming soon on her proposed topic â€“ which will undoubtedly fire up conversation and inspire new thought.
London â€“ Gallerist Cynthia Corbett today announced that her Art Prize will no longer be sponsored by Trafigura, and will instead be renamed the Young Masters Art Prize.
Cynthia explains â€œSince the prize was conceived 2 years ago we approached various art foundations and corporate organizations to sponsor an art prize. Â We feel that the recent events involving Trafigura are detracting from the main purpose of the prize, which is to celebrate emerging and newly established artists.â€
TheÂ Young Masters Art Prize will be awarded to one of sixteen international artists who have been chosen to exhibit work at theÂ Young Masters exhibition, which opened at The Old Truman Brewery last Thursday night with over 1200 visitors.
The winner of theÂ Young Masters Art Prize will be announced on Tuesday 3November, and the prize will be continued each year, with funding for the prize money sourced for alternative sponsors. This year the prize will be non-monetary.
TheÂ Young Masters Art Prize will be judged by an independent panel of high profile artists, journalists and historians.
