Kew Science is at the forefront of work around
food security, biodiversity and protecting the
world’s plants from climate change.
The main theme of our summer 2022 programme
is food security. It’s a three-month programme
highlighting the importance of Kew’s scientific
work in this area and seeks to connect our
visitors to nature in new and innovative ways.
We’re seeking submissions from artists of all
disciplines (sound designers, sculpture artists,
food artists etc.) for our summer programme 2022.
The varied artworks in the programme will add a
new layer to visitors’ understanding and enjoyment
of the landscape, encouraging them to reconnect
and experience nature with fresh eyes and ears!
We’re looking for artists that want to give a cultural
response to Wakehurst and Kew Science, exploring
exciting ways to connect our audience with nature,
while communicating the core work that Kew Science
is doing in the areas of food security and biodiversity.
The overall themes of the programme are:
• Food security
• Biodiversity for a healthy planet and body
• Taste and diversity in our diet
• Water intensity for food production
• Natural capital
We are looking to commission between six and
ten installations of different scales with budgets
ranging from £5,000 to £30,000.
Expression of interest by 30 June.
