In 2017 the University of Cambridge appointed the Contemporary Art Society to develop a comprehensive public art strategy alongside the masterplan redevelopment of their research campus.

Home to the renowned Cavendish Laboratory and research departments, the strategy is designed to reflect the distinctive character of academic and research priorities at West Cambridge whilst ensuring the arts and cultural animation play an intrinsic part in the creation of a new socially dynamic public realm.

Over the next 12 years we will deliver the public art programme through arts and research collaborations – showcasing scientific endeavour through a creative lens.
