About Trellis

Trellis is a multistage art commissioning programme that aims to bring together artists, UCL researchers and local east London communities to co-create work together.

The programme began in 2018, when the first cohort of artists and researchers came together at a matchmaking event. Since then, we worked with over a hundred artists and researchers, and many local community individuals and organisations through a process which has so far led to 15 commissions in three exhibitions. 

This latest exhibition is the culmination of a years work between 6 artists, 9 researchers and a multitude of partners from across the boroughs of Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.

Trellis is part of a wider scheme of cultural and community engagement work happening around the new UCL East campus, which aims to build a culture of mutual benefit, collaboration and exchange between UCL staff and students and our local communities.

Trellis is co-funded by UCL Public Art and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). Find out more about the programme.
