Young London Print Prize

Jan 20 2023

The Young London Print Prize is a programme that brings climate change and art together, with no costs for schools or students: all materials, including a teacher’s pack, are provided by the scheme.

It’s both an art programme, aiming to diversify contemporary art to reflect the breadth of race, religion, class and gender of London’s schoolchildren; and a climate programme. Society has so far focused its attention on developing technical fixes to climate change. But to truly tackle the problem we need to approach from an angle that engages our emotions as well as our brains. Art can do this, and it enables young people, who can be frightened or turned off by the scale of this issue, to express their response to the crisis.

The programme is designed to run during art lessons and is open to Years 5 & 6 pupils. Last year, during October the YLPP ran in-school workshops to get teachers and pupils started on their entry (which must be a print). The prizes, and a Curator’s Pick from each participating school, were selected by a panel of Year 12 pupils. The winners were announced in November and displayed on the Piccadilly Circus lights and now hang in a professional art gallery.

Schools get to keep any materials left over from the workshops. YLPP 2022 impact report for H&F
