About

Robert Walters Group partners with Saatchi Gallery and UK New Artists to explore the future of work

The Robert Walters Group is proud to partner with Saatchi Gallery and UK New Artists (UKNA) for an artistic exploration of how the legacy of the Covid-19 pandemic will reshape the future of work.

Join the Discussion

In a week-long social media event, taking place 3-9 August 2020, Saatchi Gallery, UKNA and Robert Walters Group will be calling their followers to share artwork that provokes discussion about how the change and experiences of the lockdown period have influenced the world of business. Followers will be invited to submit their creations on Instagram using the hashtags #SAATCHITAKEOVER and #FutureofWork. The ten best submissions will be selected and showcased on Saatchi Gallery's social media channels to over six million followers.

Live Sessions

During the week-long social media event, Saatchi Gallery will host two Instagram Live sessions designed to equip emerging and established artists with practical advice and insight to help them navigate their careers in the post-pandemic landscape.

The first session, taking place on 4 August 2020, will see Robert Walters Group UK Young Artist of the Year 2019 Award winner and runner-up, Conor Rogers and Camilla Hanney share their lockdown experiences, the impact of their award wins, and top tips for growing an artistic career. The second session, 'The Business of Creativity', on 6 August 2020 will be a live discussion between Martin Knox, former creative director of Next and artist Michael Forbes as they explore how practices traditionally adopted in the corporate world can be used to articulate and develop artistic identity.

Robert Walters, chief executive of the Robert Walters Group commented: "The abrupt onset of the Covid-19 virus brought an extraordinary shift in where, when and how we work, impacting industries around the globe. As the world emerges from this crisis, we are delighted to collaborate with Saatchi Gallery and UKNA to reflect on the changes we've experienced and explore how these will shape the future of work."

How to Take Part

From Monday 3 August, artists will be invited to submit their future of work creations on their Instagram profiles, using the hashtags #SAATCHITAKEOVER and #FutureofWork.
