ABOUT THE THEME

A challenge, an observation, a protest, a suggestion, a material innovation, a small shift in perception can affect seismic change.

Now in its 5th year, The John Ruskin Prize 2019 aims to uphold Ruskin’s beliefs whilst challenging the nation’s creatives to consider their role as catalysts of change, critics, social and political commentators and material innovators. Open to a broad range of interpretations, this year the prize organisers are inviting entries in response to the theme: ‘Agent of Change’.
