Welcome to the RBC Emerging Artists Series in partnership with Masterpiece and Sotheby’s Institute of Art. A unique resource for emerging artists, topics in this series address many of the practical issues faced in the development of a professional artistic career - knowledge that is essential to the daily management of the profession, yet often isn't spoken about.
Supporting the arts is a long-standing priority at RBC. We recognise the important role they play in building vibrant communities and strong economies. We also acknowledge the struggle many artists go through to gain the recognition they need to become successful in their practice. We hope you’ll use this resource to inform and support your career as an artist.
RBC has a longstanding commitment to supporting the arts and is proud to be the Principal Partner of Masterpiece London for the 9th year. Through innovative partnerships and initiatives, we continue to focus on championing creativity and building the next generation of artistic talent. The well-established RBC Art Collection, and RBC Emerging Artists Project are testament to our celebration of all artistic expression.
