Pilvi Takala was the winner of the 2013 Emdash Award, aimed towards production of a new art work for Frieze Art Fair. The artist invited a group of children aged 8 to 12 who were regulars at a youth centre in Bow, London to spend her award. They were free to spend the money any way they wanted, as well as to choose how they would formulate decisions as a group. In “The Committee”, the children explain how they decided to spend the £7,000.00 prize money and discuss the process of decision making and the values guiding their decisions.
