Utp Rising 2022

Utp Rising is a community of young artists.


Utp Rising are an ensemble of 9 artists working to find their place and roles as artists within a burgeoning arts community. Utp Rising are supportive, curious, critical and sincere and work within Utp to ground their roles, careers and ambitions as artists.

In 2022 we commissioned Utp Rising members to produce individual and collaborative new projects. We're exploring accessible and meaningful ways to connect with audience in today's world.

Soft Landings

Through their group show soft landings, Utp Rising artists invite you to find comfort and suspend time to contemplate reality or imagine one anew. They work with video, sound, writing, installation, painting, mixed media, animation, and performance to bring their concepts to life.
