We're excited to be launching a new project funded by Arts Council England this spring. The Future Human project will explore what’s in store for humanity and planet earth in the year 2050, delving into the problems we might face as our species evolves, the climate continues to change, and technology advances at an ever-increasing rate.
We’ll be recruiting a group of young people to work with scientists and technologists to gather research about cutting-edge technologies and scientific evidence and theories that might give us a glimpse into the future. The group will then go on to produce artworks that represent their findings and imagined ideas for the future, in collaboration with a team of artists. Documentation of the project alongside the artworks produced will form an exhibition in our gallery.
Alongside this, we’ll be running one off talks, as well as drop-in creative workshops for the general public to get involved too.
If you know a creative young person aged 11-17 who’s interested in science and technology, then sign up to our mailing list to be the first to hear about our Future Human Camp that will be taking place over the Easter and May holidays.
Call for Artists
We’re looking for artists to work with our group of young people to make artwork that responds to the theme of ‘Future Human’, with a focus on what life might be like in the year 2050. Selected artists will work in collaboration with the group to produce artworks informed and inspired by the work they have done previously during the project.
