ARTiculation Alumni

Over 450 past ARTiculation Prize participants are now part of the network, officially launched in 2016.

We create and find opportunities for alumni such as work experience in arts organisations, presenting their talks at conferences and developing their presentations into written articles.

We are proud of our ARTiculation Alumni who tell us how their participation in the initiative allowed them to seek new opportunities and develop their ideas about studying arts subjects.

Alumni are also invited to contribute to the ARTiculation blog a place for them to share their experiences, their practice, ideas and opinions.

If you have taken part in ARTiculation, please get in touch to join our network of young people interested, or involved, in the arts.

For me,  ARTiculation was a really important catalyst for thinking about art and politics together. The relationship, and often non-relationship, between making and theory are incredibly complicated and endlessly fascinating. For this reason I chose to study a joint honours degree in Fine Art and History of Art at Goldsmiths University as opposed to either one or the other. This is one of the best decisions I have made.

Izzy Tennant from Bury St Edmunds County Upper School won first place in 2012

I’ve gained so much confidence over the whole process in who I am and how I express myself. In seeking to understand these artists and their work, I have also found myself to be passionate about articulating what underlies our common humanity. The competition has been formative in shaping my outlook and hopes for the future. I’m thrilled to have secured work experience placement at the National Galleries of Scotland this summer and will be applying to study History of Art at university. 

Zach Taylor from Abbey Grange Academy won first place in 2019

It was ARTiculation which helped to settle me on the track of studying History of Art at university. I’m now in my first year at Oxford, having taken a fine art foundation course. I’m enjoying my course for its broad-minded approach  and the emphasis placed on looking and describing; it’s also a subject in which your opinion is challenged at literally every turn.
