An integrated programme of exhibitions, artist-led projects and educational activities will reach out, across the art forms and other disciplines, to address the urgent social, environment and scientific issues that concern us all today. The Centre will organise four exhibitions a year spanning art, design, new media, photography and architecture, with artist residences, long and short-term projects linked to educational workshops, talks, conferences and courses. Work resulting from residences and projects will form part of a permanent collection, along with other commissions. It will also organise occasional live events and work across the art forms, involving literature, music and dance and promote links with science, new technologies and other disciplines. The Centre will stimulate a network of research links with Universities and organisations in Britain and abroad, tour its exhibitions internationally and reach out through the world-wide web.
