Artists’ Lottery Syndicate Launch Party
Join us for the official launch of the Artists' Lottery Syndicate on Friday 2 July!
The Artists' Lottery Syndicate is a newly-formed group of 40 artists from all corners of the UK who are joining forces to play The National Lottery over the course of a year, with the hope of hitting the jackpot.
The launch event will feature a mini-panel discussion looking at the ideas driving the Artists' Lottery Syndicate and exploring potential strategies for navigating the uncertain future of arts funding in the UK – with Ellie Harrison (syndicate secretary), Judith Knight (co-director Artsadmin) and other speakers TBC. It will be an opportunity to meet the artists gearing up for this experiment in collective gambling, to drink, socialise and be merry and will climax with a live link to the syndicate’s first EuroMillions draw on BBC1 at 23:35. It could be us!
