For the next 12 months, the Arts Catalyst's founder and Director Nicola Triscott will be based in Washington D.C., from where she'll be exploring opportunities for the Arts Catalyst in the USA, as well as - after 21 years leading Arts Catalyst - taking a semi-sabbatical to extend her research and writing.

The Arts Catalyst is looking for volunteers for the Centre for Arts Science and Technology, opening in January 2016. This is an ideal opportunity for someone with a passion for art, science and technology to gain experience in a dynamic gallery/project space environment.
