Welcome to Q-Art, an events and publishing organisation that asks questions of, and aims to break down the barriers to art education and the contemporary art world. We organise symposia and produce books and videos that feature interviews with further and higher education art staff from across a range of art schools and universities. 


In November 2018 we celebrated our 10 year anniversary. Between 2008 – 2018 we conducted: 80 workshops, 70 crits, 25 talks, 8 symposia, 7 gallery tours, 6 annual exhibitions, and produced 5 books and a video, engaging more than 10,000 people through out activity. Thank you to everyone who supported us during this time.

We’re currently taking some time out to pursue further study and plan to relaunch in 2025.

We had such a great day yesterday, working with the fantastic young people from National Saturday Clubs from all around the country. They took part in our Talking About Contemporary Art workshops, engaging with Hew Locke’s epic work The Procession @Tate. Thank you @natsatclub pic.twitter…
