Exploring knowledge exchange between academics and artists.
We are working with UCL staff and research students who are interested in working in partnership with artists to create a work to be displayed on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in October 2019.
The activity is part of the Trellis programme of Community Engagement, funded by the EPSRC Impact Acceleration Account, which aims to facilitate knowledge exchange between researchers and communities and individuals based around the future UCL East campus.
The activity is also part of the wider vision for UCL Public Art in creating opportunities for collaboration between artists, researchers and communities.
In December 2018 we invited a group of artists and researchers to a matchmaking event on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. You can read more about this event on our Public Engagement blog, or watch the video below.
Those who attended this event are now eligible to apply for stage 1 funding to begin building relationships between researchers and artists.
The deadline for stage 1 is 31st January 2019.
