Up Projects,

UP Commissions support artists to make ambitious and experimental new work for the public realm.  These may range from proposals that respond to the environment where work is produced, to interdisciplinary collaboration, to pieces that are co-produced with communities. 

UP Commissions support artists to make ambitious and experimental new work for the public realm.  These may range from proposals that respond to the environment where work is produced, to interdisciplinary collaboration, to pieces that are co-produced with communities.

Fundamental to UP Commissions are questions that provoke thought about what constitutes public art, what community is, and how we inhabit and co-exist in places and spaces in the 21st century.

The inaugural commission will be announced in early 2019.

UP Commissions are part of ourLive Research which prioritises working with and supporting artists to open up questions, invite dialogue and explore the parameters of what public art is.
