Articulation engages young people aged between 14 and 23, regardless of background or experience, with art and develops their confidence and ability to express their opinions, thoughts and conclusions.

A programme of activities takes place nationally and, increasingly internationally. Working with The National Gallery, London since 2022 and previously the Roche Court Educational Trust where it was established in 2006.

We have been working with Articulation since 2018 when we first worked with them on the Articulation Prize and Discovery Days.

Since 2020 we have concentrated on the annual Articulation Prize which invites full-time students aged between 16 and 19 to deliver a 10-minute presentation to an audience about a work of art, architecture or an artefact in a museum or gallery setting. Over 1000 young people across England, Scotland, Ireland and Singapore take part in heats which see them research and discuss a subject, increasing their confidence and knowledge.

For 2024, our Articulation Prize heat is on Tuesday 16 January 2024 and we have Harriet Loffler adjudicating, who is Curator of The Women’s Art Collection at Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge. You can find the previous adjudicators and this years for all the heats here.

We always really appreciate the time and research that goes into the presentations and the courage of the young people to present to an audience. Good luck if you are taking part this year, where ever that is.
