Utp Rising 2023

Utp Rising is an artist collective creating a supportive and inclusive community that fosters creativity, curiosity, critical thinking and sincerity.


Utp Rising members are committed to creating art that is authentic, meaningful and true to their individual perspectives and experiences. They value honesty and transparency in their creative process, and are not afraid to share their vulnerabilities and struggles with one another.

We look forward to inviting you to their new group exhibition in November 2023.

Over the years the collective has had many different iterations and ways of working. In 2022, the artists organised their first group show, 'soft landings', at Bankstown Arts Centre.
