New Award to celebrate John Maynard Keynes’ legacy announced

3A new award, the Charleston-EFG John Maynard Keynes Prize, was announced this evening by Director of the Charleston Trust Alistair Burtenshaw at a lecture at the Charleston Festival given by Channel 4 News Culture and Digital Editor Paul Mason.

This new global prize will award an individual of any nationality of exceptional and inter-disciplinary talents in the spirit of John Maynard Keynes’ work, life and legacy. Reflecting that legacy, the winner will be widely recognised as having made an outstanding contribution to society through his or her work in economics, the arts, international relations, politics or a combination of these disciplines.

The first winner will be revealed in early 2015. In the spirit of the Bloomsbury Group, the Prize will be a specially commissioned work of art, details of which will be announced in the coming months. The winner will also be invited to give the annual Charleston-EFG Keynes lecture at the Charleston Festival each May.
