Ruskin Today is an informal network devoted to promoting wider knowledge and understanding of the ideas of the great Victorian writer, reformer and artist, John Ruskin (1819-1900).
It brings together organisations and individuals from around the world with a shared interest in Ruskin’s life and work. (The name is inspired by Ruskin’s personal motto: ‘To-Day’.)
Originally set up in 1995 to plan the programme of events in 2000 that marked the centenary of John Ruskin’s death, Ruskin Today is now preparing to mark the bicentenary of his birth (in 2019). Members meet in London at roughly six-monthly intervals.
The founder and original chair of Ruskin Today was David Barrie. He was succeeded as chair by John Iles in February 2016.
