What is Art 50?

What does Britain look and feel like today? The outcome of the Brexit referendum stimulated a widespread debate about our national identity, with many people looking to express how they feel about our nation as we approach a future outside the EU.

50 projects funded by Sky Arts on this topic will be showcased in four programmes on TV in March 2019. They will be presented by Stephen Mangan, Joan Bakewell and Vick Hope.

Art 50: The Sound of Britain - Monday 25th March at 9pm

Art 50: A Picture of Britain - Tuesday 26th March at 9pm

Art 50: Britain on Film - Wednesday 27th March at 9pm

Many of our projects and artists including Nitin Sawhney, Hanbury & Groves, Dancexchange, Boy Blue and Lemn Sissay were seen in February 2019 at some of the the Art 50 festivals in February at the Sage Gateshead, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and the Barbican in London.
