Someone would have thought it was Christmas...

The great ol Louis V is giving back to the young....Yes that's right they are launching a young arts project for a duration of three years to support projects for young artists in conjunction with five leading London culture institutions. A collaboration which is very much a creative link up includes the Tate Modern, Whitechapel Gallery, Hayward Gallery, Royal Academy of Arts and South London Gallery to promote a breed of fresh creativity amongst creative arts students from across the capital. 
"The Louis Vuitton Young Arts Project will see five panels of young people, all from different areas of London, interacting as part of a peer-led youth forum for the enjoyment and further understanding of art. The five panels, one from each institution, comprise young people aged 13-25 recruited from local borough schools and community youth groups", Louis Vuitton explains. There will also be a website dedicated to this program to display the work of these fine creative and young breeds, so kind of LV. Yves Carcelle, Louis Vuitton's Chairman and CEO thought he might add his own five pence piece by saying that LV, "as the leader of the luxury industry, we believe that we naturally have a responsibility to the world around us. Moreover, transmitting savoir-faire and creativity is one of our founding cornerstones. Preserving the past and preparing for a brighter future are fundamental values that have inspired us for more than 150 years. Supporting children and young peoples’ futures are one of our main actions worldwide". I am glad they realise that this industry needs such movements and I am glad they have their hands are up high!
