from Amy Mallett at Sustainability First:

Sustainability First is a think tank and charity that promotes practical ways to improve environmental, social and economic wellbeing in public utilities such as energy, water and communications.

We recently launched the Sustainable Futures Art Project, which brings together knowledge from these sectors and art practice, to encourage dialogue, change behaviours, educate and inspire people. A key part of this programme is an Art Prize to invite original, radical ideas and visions in response to the question ‘How do we build from the current corona crisis towards a more sustainable future?’

We are delighted to formally launch the art competition and wondered whether you would help distribute this email to personal networks, or on your own website.

The Prize is open to all living British and international artists based in the UK, established and emerging, over the age of 18 years. The winning artist will receive a prize of £1000, with £300 for second prize and £200 for third prize.

Enclosed with this email (unless this online enquiry form doesn’t allow) is a link to the full competition advert, outlining the scope, high-profile judging panel (including Professor Jeremy Till, Head of Central St Martins and Pro Vice-Chancellor of the University of Arts London), prizes to be won, online prize-giving event and details on how to enter. A link to the terms and conditions of competition entry are also attached.

We are also conducting a survey to gather wider views on ‘How do we build from the current corona crisis towards a more sustainable future?’  We would be grateful if you could fill in the survey by clicking on this link – and share it with friends and contacts.

If you have any questions, please let us know at
