Satellites Update

In recent months, Collective has been in conversation with current and former participants in Satellites, our emerging artists’ programme.

The artists have expressed concerns about funding we receive to support the programme from Baillie Gifford.

As an organisation founded by artists, and with artists at our core, we have reached the decision to withdraw from our funding agreement with Baillie Gifford. We are grateful for their support for our programmes in recent years.

Without this funding, we will not be able to continue Satellites in its current form. Over the coming months we will work with current Satellites artists to explore alternative ways forward.
