The Quentin Blake Centre for Illustration

I've just received an announcement that the House of Illustration (in London, UK) will be developed into the The Quentin Blake Centre for Illustration, from Autumn 2022. It will be "the world’s largest public arts space dedicated to the art of illustration in all its forms." At present, they have nothing like the calibre of SVS, but they do have a newsletter that's worth subscribing to on their website (https://houseofillustration.org.uk) as well as some downloadable resources for children and schools. It's almost comical the number of past exhibitions they've had about Quentin Blake (although, he is the founder so...), as if there are no other illustrators! But if they can expand their repertoire perhaps it's worth keeping an eye on for the future.
@Adam-Thornton this is so cool! I'm going to check this out
