The Collusion Commission calls on UK artists, from all disciplines to propose bold new works

The Collusion Commission are looking to commission and present a series of groundbreaking new artworks across the broad spectrum of art, technology and human interaction.

Collusion commissions support the creation of inspiring art and experiences by leading professional UK artists working with emerging technologies. 

Bold, ambitious proposals will be selected that are creative, thought-provoking and deliver interactive, immersive experiences exploring the impact of technology on society and also take a fresh perspective on the themes and core concerns of our time.

Proposed works should also consider how they might illustrate, explore or address the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. Technology will play a key role in addressing the Goals and artists can make a vital contribution by providing alternative perspectives. 

Successful projects will be in development from January 2018 to March 2019, leading to a major exhibition taking place in Cambridge in April 2019 as the culmination of the three-year in_collusion programme. 

  • The commissions are open to UK artists across all disciplines, as well as arts organisations, collectives and creatives assembled around cross-disciplinary making, including those working across art and technology.

  • Projects will have outline budgets in the range of £10,000 - £20,000.

  • The deadline for applications is 12 noon on 17 October 2017
