Four Culture has been working with not-for-profit social enterprise and Arts Council NPO Pop Up Projects since last summer helping to build its profile as an ambitious, innovative organisation which enables children, schools and families from all backgrounds to access literature.
In April, the team promoted its Pop Up Creators international illustration exchange exhibition, which was co-curated with the House of Illustration. The exhibition, launched to coincide with the London Book Fair's Baltic Countries market focus, is the culmination of a year-long collaboration between 150 talented young artists from 16 universities and colleges and 18 professional illustrators from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and the UK. The legacy of the project is an online showcase of illustration talent, Pathways, which is designed to promote and nurture young artists from diverse backgrounds so they can access the children's publishing industry.
Four Culture secured coverage of the project in among others Londonist, TimeOut, The Bookseller, Publishing Perspectives and BookBrunch. The exhibition is free to attend at the Royal Over-Seas League until 20 May so do visit to see the incredible artwork from the illustrators of the future.
