The North West Cambridge Development is an exciting urban extension of Cambridge managed by the University of Cambridge. At its heart is a focus on building a vibrant community, a commitment to the arts and creativity is an important part of nurturing this community and sense of place.

The Contemporary Art Society and InSite Arts are working together to deliver the Art Programme for North West Cambridge Development. The Art Programme encompasses major landmark commissions, three on-site artist residencies every year as well as a programme of temporary events and community engagement activities.
