text description

Luke Jerram’s multidisciplinary arts practice involves the creation of sculptures, installations and live arts projects. Living Bristol, but born in Gloucestershire, Jerram has created a number of extraordinary art projects which have excited and inspired people around the world.

His current project Of Earth & Sky combines his interest in giving people the opportunity for creative expression and bringing people together – on this occasion, around poetry and landscape. This work will ask the public to create short lines of text and poetry about the local area where they will be displayed within the landscape, alongside railway track.

UZ Arts,

The United Kingdom (UK)

Founding member of IN SITU in 2003, until 2020

UZ Arts was established in 2011 as a charity to support every aspect of the creation and distribution of art. It builds upon the legacy of UZ Events established in 1994 to create large - scale festivals and events for Scotland. UZ Arts supports artists who wish to work across borders and artforms and outside conventional venues through residencies, commissioning, presenting and sometimes touring their work. UZ manages the international artist residency programme at the Sura Medura Centre in Sri Lanka. It commissions through the support of Creative Scotland and as UK representative of the European network IN SITU.

The company creates innovative cultural platforms that support partnerships between the public and private sector, the artistic and wider communities. In 2012 UZ established the Scottish network “Roofless” to support producers who wished to present art in public space in Scotland with partners from the Shetland Islands in the north to Dumfries and Galloway in the South-West. In 2015 UZ launched a new festival “Galoshans” in Greenock Scotland with a national and international programme inspired by an ancient local practice celebrating Halloween - “when two worlds meet” and an international annual symposium “MovingOut” exploring development in art in public space in Sri Lanka and Scotland.
