Christine Risley Award 2021 Open Call

The Christine Risley Award is a £500 cash prize awarded annually by the Goldsmiths Textile Collection & Constance Howard Gallery to a graduating Goldsmiths BA student for outstanding creative practice-based work relating to the field of textiles. The award is made possible by the generous bequest of the late Christine Risley, a Goldsmiths alumna and widely respected textile educator, author, and practitioner.

The £500 cash prize also comes with the opportunity to exhibit work in the Constance Howard Gallery, home to the Goldsmiths Textile Collection.
