Northern Futures Award

Tomorrow’s talent today.
Celebrating the best in northern creative talent

I have been shortlisted for the Northern Futures Award in the area of Fine Art.

Northern Futures will run from the 28th July to 3rd September at The Civic, Barnsley. The winner will be announced on the 16th August.

The north of England has produced some of the most innovative and respected creative individuals the world as seen. Artists and innovators such as Henry Moore, Vivienne Westwood, Damien Hirst, Mike Leigh, Danny Boyle, David Hockney and Peter Saville, to name just a few, illustrate the wealth of talent that the north produces.

Art and culture is integral to the renaissance of the north, which is already home to some of the country's leading creative businesses, art galleries, events and venues. Northern Futures celebrates the future talent emerging from the north, seeking to identify and encourage future Westwoods, Hockneys, Boyles and Savilles into successful creative futures. The prize will cement the north as a hotbed of new creativity and showcase our talent to the world.
