Trellis 3 kicked off in February 2021 when 80+ artists and researchers were brought together through a series of online matchmaking events. These events aimed to spark ideas and interest in working together. From this, 12 artist-researcher partnerships have been awarded funding of £2,000 to develop ideas for collaboration.

The partnerships are:

  • Artist Shirin Naveed with Louie Lee (Department for Neuromuscular Diseases)
  • Artist Ella Bulley with Amy Widdicombe (Department of Computer Science)
  • Artist Johann Arens with Hanna Baumann (Institute for Global Prosperity)
  • Artist Caroline Wright with Dr Tim Adlam, Youngjun Cho and Maryam Bandukda (Global Disability Innovation Hub)
  • Artist Alejandra Carles-Tolra with Dr Nicole Brown (Institute of Education)
  • Artist Duncan Paterson with Azadeh Shariati (Department of Mechanical Engineering)
  • Artist Marysa Dowling with Catherine Perrodin (Institute of Behavioural Neuroscience) and Liam Browne (Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Research)
  • Artists Jonathan Hogg and Andy D’Cruz (Output Arts) with Awurabena Kessie (Centre for Research in Autism)
  • Artist Shezad Dawood with Felix Donaldson (London Centre for Nanotechnology)
  • Artist Kassandra Gordon with Dr Ayse Akarca (UCL Cancer Institute)
  • Artist Louise Essex with Dr Antonio Sennis (Department of History)
  • Artist Simon Goodwin with Pablo Fernández Velasco (Department of Experimental Psychology)

During stage one, selected artists and researchers will continue to exchange knowledge, build relationships with east London communities and strengthen ideas towards a final project proposal. From this, five projects will be shortlisted to collaboratively create work with each other and local east London communities. The final commissions will be announced in July 2021.

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