Legacy – Inspiring, Destigmatising and Championing Inclusivity

If a theme were deemed appropriate as part of a brief to British Artists, and we focussing on young adult wellbeing, this could be centred around Movement, Mindfulness and Motivation.


12 Artists (from the BRIT Art movement) mentoring 12 up and coming artists to create 24 works of art to be auctioned for BRIT (and possibly other charities) in 2024.

Capturing the Passion of British Artists


Filming, interviewing, and sharing the artists’ passions to destigmatise mental health, why they are involved with the BRIT Art project, and the stories behind the works of art they will create for auction.


Sharing those interviews/podcasts through social media and websites with young people, students and young artists – Bonhams would promote these stories with collectors/potential buyers.


Ensuring artists with inspirational stories of overcoming adversity are involved (for example Tracey Emin CBE RA,  Romilly Saumarez SmithRyan Gander OBE RA and Yinka Shonibare CBE RA).


Engaging Students at Art Institutions

The third aim of BRIT Art is to inspire and encourage students studying art to embrace inclusivity. This would be by way of each artist sharing why they are involved in BRIT Art with an institution of their choice.


UK Art Colleges (and leading universities) will be invited to hold a competition for their students to create a work of art in 24 hours / 24 days around Movement, Mindfulness, and Motivation, to help destigmatise mental health. The institutions would be asked to put forward their winning student’s work of art and they will be displayed and judged by the BRIT Artists.
