12ø is a collective based in London, motivated by interesting processes rather than shiny exhibitions. We create projects that exploit the gaps in our knowledge and our eagerness to learn.

We are striving to create a programme that promotes, challenges and encourages artistic practice in all its manifestations rather than scoring points for the CV. For us to do this, it’s paramount that we have an open, flexible, and supportive approach, catering to artists' development and their individual needs. For this to be possible we recognise that we need to focus and take responsibility both in our programme and organisational structures to effectively remove barriers. You can read our organisation guidelines/policy here

We have received two grants from Arts Council England. We are currently in the middle of the second grant funded programme. You can see the budget from our first funded programme here

 

We actively encourage the use of access docs for anyone we work with, so that we know what we need to do to facilitate and provide an equal access to work, for more information on access docs for artists please visit: Access Docs for Artists website


We invite criticism to improve what we do and how we do it, if there's something you see, hear or feel about how we do things we would be grateful for your input. If you’d like to say something, you can email us at info@12ocollective.com or you can do so anonymously through our bad reviews page.
