Request a display
If you are an organisation with blank walls looking for a unique way to liven up your premises and support our work then please get in touch to discuss Koestler Displays.
Displays can be tailored to the opportunity, but follow two basic models: ‘Art in Offices’ and ‘100 for £100’.
Art in Offices
The Koestler Trust can offer a guided tour of our arts centre by one of our arts team with access to thousands of artworks from entrants to the Awards. These can be booked in to offer first-pick and curated selections of the available works. We can focus on specific themes, areas, etc and work with you to choose the most impactful pieces for your space. We can co-ordinate purchasing the work from the artists with donation to Victim Support, professionally printed captions, framing, installation technicians and delivery.
This curatorial package is tailor-made to your specifications and includes a donation towards our costs of processing the works through the awards cycle (including visiting prisons, outreach, admin, marketing, certificates and feedback), so helps us reach our charitable objectives at the same time as providing a lively office environment.
100 for £100
If you have a space with lots of customers, and would like a very cost-effective way of improving your environment and offering unique works for sale, contact us to discuss 100 for £100.
We have 100 artworks, which entrants to the Awards have donated to us, framed and ready to hang. The 100 for £100 works are loaned for a year with the agreement that the host handles sales on a sale or return basis. We will even provide spare artworks so you are not left with gaps on the wall when you sell a work. We have a set number of works available so will take into consideration cost of transporting to you (we’re based in London), size of space, and the potential for sales on your site.
If you are a public arts venue interested in partnering with the Koestler Trust on public exhibitions and events please get in touch with our Director of Arts, Fiona Curran to discuss.
