20 collections, 20 commissions

20/20 is a national programme led by UAL Decolonising Arts Institute and funded by Arts Council England’s National Lottery Grants Programme, Freelands Foundation and UAL.

We’re looking for 20 emerging/mid-career ethnically diverse artists of colour to take on 15-month paid, virtual residencies at 20 UK museums, galleries and art collection partners. Each artist will produce a commissioned artwork that will become a permanent piece in that collection.

The first call for artists is open for applications until 6 June 2022. A second call will open in January 2023.
