April 2023, Social Impact Club Conference, London Business School

My vision is to bring awareness to climate change and sustainability through art. We need research and innovation to make an impact. We need keynote speakers who are respected globally and we also need artistic inspiration that touches the heart.

I am so lucky to have this genuinely diverse group of friends who bring together so many impactful voices.

I am thrilled that I could support the 5th Social Impact Club Conference at London Business School and curate a digital art exhibition with my fellow RASummer2022 exhibitors.

As a force for the good, business must engage with the most pressing, heartfelt concerns of the world. Many of those concerns can be analysed through the classic disciplines of a great Business School, but to touch our own hearts as leaders – and the hearts of those we lead – we need more. We need emotional engagement and inspiration. We will find these through the powerful expressions that artists convey to us through their hopes and fears for the future in this time when they acutely feel the way in which the world hangs in the balance.

The LBS Social Impact Club is proud to host an extraordinary selection of works of art on the theme of climate change recently exhibited at London's Royal Academy, curated by artist and curator Lukas Kroulik, whose work, with his fellow exhibitors, was chosen by the judges for the 2022 Royal Academy summer exhibition. Their work has been widely featured, in one case chosen to commemorate the late Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee.

We are featuring 15 pieces that will be projected throughout the week introduced by Prof Ioannis Ioannou in his keynote talk on social impact on April 13. The exhibitors’ biographies will be available through QR codes on their work, and many of them will be present in person.

A. V. M. by Lukas Kroulik, lucky number 108, for Chelsea Arts Club Charity Auction 2023.

My artwork was created and adapted from my Summer Exhibition 2023 entry to tie together my vision on connection the theme 'Animal, Vegetable, Mineral' for a canvas 12" x 12".

I was true to my sustainability and climate change message and to make it special I applied a piece of discontinued art paper, my original photo test prints, piece of string from a Vivienne Westwood label, left-over gold leaf given to me by a friend and award winning book binder Laura West who used it for one of her latest book binding vegan projects.
