Arts Collaboratory (AC) is a translocal ecosystem consisting of 25 diverse organisations around the world focused on art practices, processes of social change, and working with broader communities beyond the field of art. In Arts Collaboartory’s ecosystem knowledge and strengths are brought together and harvested in processes of collective organization. It is a radical experiment in exploring the potentiality of art and social transformation.

Founded in 2007 and existing in its current form since 2015, Arts Collaboratory is an ecosystem of 24 diverse art organisations situated in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and Europe, all focused on the collective governance of the network. The organisations engage in expanded artistic and curatorial experiments for social change and sustainability practices in their respective contexts, while experimenting with new geographies of relations and webs of solidarities. Arts Collaboratory has a self-governing structure organized through assemblies, meetings called banga (meaning “time and space” in the Ugandan language Luganda), working groups, and collaborative projects. They connect different communities of artists, collectives, activists, curators, researchers, organisations, and platforms with different languages, interests, and diverse cultural backgrounds. The aim of unlearning capital – and productivity – driven working methods and practising anti/decolonisation is central to how the network thinks and lives.
