Arts Territory is a not-for-profit arts organisation with a mission to support artists in creating new work. We work across borders and facilitate dialogue between artists, curators and communities internationally. Operating as a nomadic, fluid and open agency, Arts Territory offers a new model of arts commissioning, supporting radical artistic experimentation, research and collaboration, alongside testing new forms of curation and expanding the agency of curating.
With a strong focus on concepts of cultural and national identification and its relation to the idea of territory, Arts Territory is dedicated to exploring new models for artists, curators and large public institutions to work together, and the development of politically-informed, critical discourses.
Arts Territory realises hybrid live events, multidisciplinary exhibitions, festivals and symposia around the globe as well as commissions content online for its journal and online space. Our projects are future-facing and wide-ranging, embracing an independent fluid structure and fostering dialogue across disciplines and borders.
Founded by curator Kasia Sobucka in London in 2012, initially as a vehicle to develop creative links between Polish and UK artists, it is now global in scope reaching beyond particular identities and provides a platform for curators and artists from a variety of backgrounds to work together.
