Articulation Alumni Network

Our growing network for over 450 former Articulation Prize participants



The network creates and finds opportunities for Articulation Alumni, such as work experience in arts organisations, the chance to present their talks at conferences, or develop their presentations into written articles.

Since officially launching in 2016, there are now 450 former Articulation Prize participants in the Alumni network. 

The network continues to grow, with more and more institutions calling on Alumni to engage audiences at their exhibitions and special events and within the digital world.

See what some of our Alumni have been up to:
