Talbot Rice Memorial Lecture

Reading time: < 1 minute
This October will see the return of the Talbot Rice Memorial Lecture as part of the Friends of Edinburgh University Visual Arts (FEUVA) programme of events.

The prestigious event is open to all and will be held at 7pm, 21 October 2021 at St Cecilia’s Hall.

This year’s speaker is Philip Long, Chief Executive of the National Trust for Scotland. Philip has spent a long career in the arts, most recently as the Director of V&A Dundee. He will explore and uncover artistic fascination with Scotland’s landscape and places, which have been a source of inspiration to creativity and ideas for centuries.

In previous years, the speakers have included Ms Fiona Hyslop, Scottish Minister for Culture and External Affairs, Sean Rainbird, Director of the National Gallery of Ireland and Professor Tim O’Shea, the previous Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University.

An entirely voluntary organisation, FEUVA is a registered Scottish charity that provides support to Edinburgh College of Art, the University art collections, and the Talbot Rice Gallery.
