Inspired by buildings

Friday 21 September | 10am–11am

This talk is for schools only.

A presentation of talks about architecture that inspired young people from schools across the country who competed in The ARTiculation Prize 2017 and 2018, a national competition designed to give young people a platform on which they are able to express their ideas on art. 

Established by Roche Court Educational Trust 12 years ago, ARTiculation is a national arts public speaking initiative for 14 to 19 year olds. It encourages students to engage in looking at and talking about art and architecture, as well as offering an insight into university life.

All speakers are ARTiculation Alumni and include:

  • Oliver Simpson Chamberlin, Powell and Bon, The Barbican Estate, 1982
  • Stewart Knights The Eden Project
  • Lewis Duncan Erno Goldfinger, The Balfron Tower, 1967

More about ARTiculation

"[ARTiculation] is a brilliant, uplifting initiative, which understands how speaking can, and should, be a way of thinking about art, and about how important it is to introduce young people to its public contexts and professional opportunities." - Dr Thomas Marks, Editor of Apollo Magazine, March 2018.

ARTiculation engages with over 5,000 young people annually.

The initiative includes ARTiculation Discovery Days, developed in partnership with Chatsworth and the University of Leeds and the annual ARTiculation Prize, which invites students to deliver 10-minute presentations on a work of art, architecture or an artefact of their choice in front of an audience and an adjudicator at museums and galleries. All students who take part are invited to join the ARTiculation Alumni programme.
