We are a Sector Support Organisation dedicated to promoting contemporary arts within the heritage sector. Our mission is to advocate for the use of artists to bring alive narratives, collections, and histories in new and unexpected ways. Through our work, we aim to attract new audiences to museums and the arts by commissioning artists to respond directly to locations, place, and collections. We also provide peer-to-peer learning opportunities and a curatorial forum for those working in the heritage sector.
