TACO!’s activities are experimental and collaborative. Invited artists are supported to research, develop and realise projects over a dedicated period of time. This research informs a public programme that includes exhibitions, events,  discussions, workshops, screenings, publishing, and co-authored participatory projects with local people and groups.  Projects initiated by artists vary in duration.  We set an open timeframe with no set expectations on outcomes.
