Since 2015, Hollyport Capital has proudly supported the Fine Art Programme at Central Saint Martins, acting as Course Patron supporting the next generation of artists.
Hollyport Capital is a London based private equity fund manager, whose investors include institutions, educational endowments, family offices and high net worth individuals.
Their support includes an exhibition in the Spring Term by second year students drawn from a shortlist where the winning artist is selected by Hollyport Capital, receiving a cash prize to support their final degree show.
A number of artworks created by students are on permanent display in Hollyport’s London office.
The [Hollyport Capital] prize is considerably beneficial going into my third year, especially thinking about the degree show, the money will enable me to actualise and ambitiously approach speculative pieces and projects that I would otherwise be unable to produce."
Will Rigby, Runner Up of the 2016 Hollyport Capital Prize
