Shrinking Space is a non-profit arts collective and production company based in London and Liverpool.
We develop multidisciplinary projects to foster collaboration between science and arts and culture. We’re driven by a commitment to promoting the distribution of knowledge, critical thinking and lifelong learning. Our work is always interactive and aims to inspire participants and audience to encourage positive behaviour change in relation to social justice and environmental issues.
Shrinking Space has created, commissioned and produced large-scale artworks and events with partners and clients, including: Somerset House, Cape Farewell, King’s college London, New Scientist, NASA Goddard Centre, The British Science Festival, Barbican and Brighton Digital Festival.
Our artistic practice is centered on cross sector collaboration and research into a range of scientific disciplines and socio-political topics.
We produce work across multiple art forms and diverse research disciplines. This means we manage all aspects of a project and bring the right people together from concept stage to creation.
We curate content for exhibitions, installations and festivals and special one off happenings.
We help universities and research institutions design creative public engagement programmes which connect them with their local communities.
We organise talks, panel discussions, workshops, book clubs, meetup groups and evening events.
We experiment with mobile technology and location based story telling formats.
