For 2020, Conrad has been selected as the Patron for Art UK, the country's leading online art platform. Arts education is essential for fostering creative cross-disciplinary thought, leading to innovations across communities. Art UK brings the nation's art collections into our homes via their growing online platform and the artworks themselves into our schools. They are inspiring the next generation and expanding the educational possibilities of our unique, untapped collections.
2020 is an important year for Art UK as their ambitious sculpture digitisation project comes to fruition. The three-year project will see around 80,000 of the nation's publicly owned sculptures join their online database, many of which have never been documented before. The UK will be the first country in the world to create a free-to-access online showcase of its publicly owned sculpture, for everyone's enjoyment, learning and research.
