Founded in 2013, 21 Artists brings artists from diverse backgrounds and disciplines together in alternative spaces to create work around a theme relevant to the spaces themselves and the people who live, work and play in the community where the projects take place. As a symbol of creation and new beginnings, the number 21 was chosen to represent the focus on creative freedom and transformation integral to every project.
Working with local partner organisations to help implement, engage and add new, rich perspectives to each project, our four projects to date held collectively throughout London and Chicago have worked with a total of 85 artists to make 85 unique pieces of work and engaged over 5,000 visitors through our events, workshops, exhibitions and public space interventions. From music to dance, performance to poetry, painting, illustration and more, artists from each project were given a platform to connect and collaborate with one another, new audiences and communities and in an international context.

We'd love to hear from you...
