About Arts Catalyst

Arts Catalyst is a nonprofit contemporary arts organisation that commissions and produces transdisciplinary art and research. We activate new ideas, conversations and transformative experiences across science and culture, engaging people in a dynamic response to our changing world.

Through working with artists, scientists, communities and interest groups we produce projects, artworks and exhibitions that connect with other fields of knowledge, expanding artistic practice into domains commonly associated with science and specialist research.

In its 25 years, Arts Catalyst has commissioned more than 170 artists’ projects, including major new works by Tomás Saraceno, Aleksandra Mir, Critical Art Ensemble, Jan Fabre and the Otolith Group, and produced numerous exhibitions, events, performances and publications, collaborating with major arts, science and academic organisations.

Arts Catalyst's Centre in King's Cross, London, is a hub for our work, nationally and internationally, where we can develop new projects and co-inquiries connecting local interests with wider planetary issues.

In late 2020 Arts Catalyst is relocating to Sheffield where it will continue its national programme and research strands. Find out more about our move and our South Yorkshire-based programme Recentring Attention here.


Arts Catalyst is registered in the UK as an arts and educational charity No 1042433 and a company limited by guarantee no 2982223.
