Artist residencies and commissions

We work with a wide range of artists to deliver many aspects of our programme.

Every year there are lots of opportunities for artists to work with us on delivering our student-focused programme. From workshops and short courses to one-off commissions and artist residencies.

In addition to this we have our contemporary art programme, Radar, where we invite artists to produce new work in response to and as part of research undertaken across Loughborough's two campuses (Loughborough and London).

If you are an artist and you are interested in working with us then please get in touch by emailing
