Representations of contemporary utopian movements will fill the Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court, celebrating projects already flourishing in the margins and liminal spaces around the UK, and the importance of the spaces that artists create for dreaming.


In partnership with the AHRC and the Connected Communities Programme, the fair will showcase the creative outcomes from 25 projects bringing together communities, researchers and artists around the UK to explore what utopia means to them. The Fair will enable visitors to join in and taste utopia now, inspiring them to take a piece of utopia home with them and into their lives.
