Radar is Loughborough University's contemporary arts research programme, and forms part of LU Arts. We invite artists to produce new work in response to, alongside and in provocation of research undertaken across Loughborough University’s two campuses. We also programme events bringing together artistic and academic work. The work we commission is process-led, frequently participatory, and often takes place in the public realm, including across our campuses.

Radar's Curator is Lucy Lopez, who manages the programme with support from the LU Arts team.

We don't typically commission work as a result of unsolicited proposals from artists, but if you have a project that you feel would benefit from the input of Loughborough University academics, please contact Lucy Lopez using the details below. We're also always happy to hear from other organisations (arts or otherwise), and researchers from other universities interested in working with us.
