Trellis: Public Art
Bringing together researchers, artists and communities.

Trellis: Public Art is a programme of knowledge exchange between researchers and artists, part of the wider vision for UCL Public Art and Community Engagement to create opportunities for collaboration between artists, researchers and communities based around the future UCL East campus..

The pilot project took place over a 10 month period in 2018-19. The Trellis pilot brought together a group of 40 researchers and artists and resulted in nine initial knowledge exchange partnerships, and four commissioned works which were displayed in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park during October 2019. You can find out more about the pilot project on the separate web page.
