The “Ibero-American Arts Award” will be evolving, this year, into the “VIA Arts Prize”.
The new name is designed to better reflect our mission. In all three official languages of the competition, “via” conveys a sense of travel, of establishing pathways and communication links, of being on the threshold, of “throughness” and liminality. All of these ideas encapsulate the ethos of the endeavour, which is to celebrate the coming together of Ibero-American cultures in London, arguably at the centre of the world’s artistic and communication networks, with its rich migrant population and even richer arts scene.
