for SEGRO Plc
SEGRO Young Artists was a five year programme, concluding each year with a fantastic exhibition at the Royal Society of Arts in London. The programme explored the theme World of Work through art, with a professional visual artist working with students to produce commercially viable art.
The students, teachers and parents from all of the schools and invited guests including Arts Council England attended the public exhibitions to view the final pieces of work. SEGRO employees were invited to the evening reception to understand the work SEGRO carry out in their communities to inspire creativity, develop aspirations and celebrate talent.
In the final year, 11 pieces of work were purchased by corporate clients, including an oil painting of The Houses of Parliament created by one student who delivered a thank you speech on behalf of the students and shared his ambition to be the future Prime Minister! SEGRO agreed to match fund the purchases, resulting in thousands of pounds for the young artists to enable them to further their creative studies.
