Arts Territory is a London based non-profit arts organisation. Initiated as a vehicle to develop creative links between Polish and UK artists and to provide a support network for international creatives interested in engaging with Polish arts, Arts Territory has developed into wider territories of investigation. Our current artistic programming is dedicated to new commissions and cross-border collaborations, development of politically informed, critical discourses that explore issues of cultural identity in a contemporary art context. We hope to inspire new, challenging art and facilitate dialogue between artists internationally. We are also dedicated to bridging the gap between what is considered music and art by giving space and attention to both mediums equally. Arts Territory fulfills its mission in a variety of ways including exhibitions, festival, through commissioning, research projects, and publications. Through meaningful dialogue with a wide range of venues and collaborators, we present projects across the UK and internationally.
