The Arts Catalyst Centre for Art, Science and Technology will go ahead. Thanks to our lovely supporters, the new centre will open in King's Cross in January 2016. The initial £15,000 target for our Art Happens crowd-funding campaign was surpassed, bringing the total to £16,016, with a record 255 funders!

The new centre will provide a dynamic focus for The Arts Catalyst’s international programme of artists’ commissions, exhibitions and research. In the past year, the organisation’s exhibitions and commissions have attracted more than 164,000 visitors worldwide.

Over the weekend of 6 June, The Arts Catalyst invited artists, designers, scientists, writers, technologists, academics, and activists to join a hands-on workshop led by designer and researcher Veronica Ranner at Furtherfield.

Living Assemblies was an opportunity for participants to investigate the coupling of the biological material silk with digital technologies, to think about future applications.
