The Moth House has delivered publicly funded arts projects in the culture sector since April 2002. It carries out two vital functions: it is focused on producing high quality books – both as self-structured initiatives and collaborative ventures with authors, artists, galleries, museums and charities – as well as organising high profile exhibitions, talks, seminars and other educational events. Our commercial activities almost always encompass a cross-sectoral program of public-led events such as talks, workshops and mentoring sessions.
The aim of these activities is to deepen the quality of cultural provision in the UK, to give a voice to talented individuals who have too often been overlooked, to promote dialogue and raise awareness of complex and ethically charged themes.
Since 2008 we have developed ground breaking projects with organisations such as the Met Police, the European Space Agency, EDP Energies, the Institute of Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences, HMP Birmingham, amongst others. We’re interested in the techniques of artistic expression these engagements activate and in the dialogue they provoke between these organisations, artists and the wider public.
Our mission is to continue encouraging debate, nurturing artists as well as inspiring new thinking about photography.
