The Moving Museum is a nomadic incubator for artists, ideas and cities. It is a large-scale, immersive project that manifests in a new place every year. We:

__Invent an agile and progressive organizational model, designed to be independent, cross-regional and site aware
__Instigate the production of new work and ideas from urgent artistic voices
__Provide artists inspiring developmental opportunities in unexpected spaces
__Identify and inhabit cities at the epicenter of shifting contemporary culture

Our Story So Far:

In our first three years, we have mobilized large-scale exhibitions that have taken over a combined 150,000 square feet of space across 10 venues in three countries, curated intensive public programmes alongside each project, published in-depth publications, hosted dynamic residencies, commissioned over 50 new artworks across all media, and developed a digital programme alongside four of the worlds most important internet artists.


The Moving Museum is an independent, not-for-profit, and non-political organization founded by Aya Mousawi and Simon Sakhai; a registered Community Interest Company (CIC) in England and Wales and registered Charity 501(c)(3) in the United States.
