Nomad Projects is an independent commissioning foundation that provides support for contemporary artists to develop socially relevant work within the public realm. We achieve this through cross-disciplinary collaboration, experimentation and action-based research.
There is no fixed period for a ‘commission’ to be realised, allowing artists to develop progressive and original contemporary art at a pace determined by the specific nature of each project.
