Making History

Name: Making History

Location: Birmingham

Created by: Karis Viola Lambert

Sponsor: Accenture

Making History is inspired by the events that have shaped England recently, which will leave ripples for years to come. Whilst the decorative style is influenced by traditional British ceramics, nodding to our past, the scenes in between showcase some of the key positive moments of the last year. The panels commemorate how communities came together to support each other and catalyse change even in the most difficult times. It reminds us that every day, our small actions are shaping our own history for the better.

Karis Lambert believes that creativity can connect people, and this is what her artwork tries to achieve. As a working artist, Karis makes paintings, illustrations, comics, and murals from her home studio in Manchester. She brings a precise, modern style to traditional media including pen and ink – often depicting significant places and surrealist portraiture.

Accenture operates on the forefront of change, combining human ingenuity and technology to deliver new value for our people, clients, communities and the planet. They believe sustainability is the new digital. Just as the digital revolution transformed how we live and work, so too will sustainability, permeating everything we do and driving new value and growth for society and business. They are honoured to support Gratitude, a project that captures some of the extraordinary experiences that have connected us over the last two years and pays tribute to the key workers and NHS who, together, have carried us through the most challenging of times.
