What is ROSL ARTS?

The Royal Over-Seas League…is required to encourage the arts particularly amongst the young people of the Commonwealth’ Royal Charter 1960

ROSL ARTS is the arts division of the Royal Over-Seas League, and for over 50 years has developed a diverse portfolio of arts activities in Music, Visual Arts and Literature, devoted to the career development of talented young professional artists and musicians from the UK and the Commonwealth, and also presents readings and literary events at its central London headquarters.

The principal ways in which ROSL ARTS supports artists and musicians is through the ROSL Annual Music Competition, ROSL Commonwealth Music Scholarships, and ROSL Commonwealth Visual Arts Scholarships. ROSL ARTS also provides performance and exhibition opportunities for its prize-winning artists and musicians early in their careers, and thus brings their work to the attention of the professional arts community, the media and the general public.
