For over ten years UP Projects has been creating extraordinary opportunities for the most surprising and inspiring artists to enrich and enliven our public realm.

Our projects have a transformative impact on the places that we work in; whether bringing high quality, world class cultural experiences to people that have very few cultural opportunities within their reach, or integrating remarkable works of art into highly visible and iconic sites. These include the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and The Royal Opera House in London’s Convent Garden.

Many of our projects have been brought to life through the generous support of individuals and businesses. For example, thanks to our supporters, we were able to build a unique mobile arts venue, The Floating Cinema.

Your support is vital in making our work happen. As an individual or business there are many ways you can work with us.

Our projects are unique and we believe our offer to you should be equally unique. We tailor very individual relationships with our supporters to ensure we can deliver what you really want.
