Thank you for allowing young people, such as myself, to express and share their passions for art. It was a wonderful experience that pushed my presentation skills to the limits! [Student Speaker, 2014]
The Roche Court Educational Trust’s ARTiculation initiative is designed to stimulate students’ interest and understanding of art while developing individual thinking, observation, research, language and presentation skills. All events are free. The ARTiculation Prize public speaking competition invites sixth form students to give a short presentation on a work of art, artefact or architecture of their choice. Partner galleries and museums host regional heats across the country prior to the finals at The University of Cambridge. Working with leading universities ARTiculation introduces higher education opportunities and our partner organisations offer career advice and student work placements. In partnership with the British Council ARTiculation continues to expand internationally, opening up cross-cultural dialogue.
The ARTiculation Prize 2015 regional heats are being held at nine different venues this year with the Finals taking place on Saturday 7 March at Clare College, University of Cambridge. For further information and images on the heats please see here. Additional images can be found on our ARTiculation Facebook page.
Examples of past ARTiculation presentations, including ARTiculation Scotland and the ARTiculation Prize 2014 can be viewed here.
ARTiculation supports national academic and vocational initiatives to include EQA’s, the Arts Award, and The Duke of Edinburgh Award.
