The ten finalists have been announced for the Award to be attributed by the UK Branch of the Gulbenkian Foundation, in partnership with King’s College, London, the Organisation for Participative Arts as a means of highlighting the role that they play in society.
This award, with a total value of £150,000 (around €170,000, corresponding to one grant of £100,000/€112,000 and two others of £25,000/€28,000 apiece), was launched with the objective of highlighting the creative ways in which these artistic organisations reacted to the coronavirus, rethinking and restructuring in order to be able to advance with their missions, placing the community at the top of their priorities.
These ten entities were selected from among a total of 260 irrespective of their respective scale – some have less than ten participants while others have over thirty – and areas of action in the field of the arts. They are all located in the United Kingdom and bear witness to how artistic organisations help shape the future, through culture, creativity and the arts in presenting cases and stories that enable us to know what it truly means to be human, both in individual terms and as a collective.
The Award selection process ends in March.More Info
