QuestLab Network
is our three-year artist development initiative, funded by Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence to create a new network of dance artists, developers, technologists and commercial organisations, leading to the development and delivery of performance and engagement projects around the country.

Our first ten dance artists were selected to be part of the programme in 2018 because they were all open to new ways of thinking, and passionate about technology’s potential to augment artistic creativity and engagement within the arts.

Our first year QuestLab Network artists are:
Tony Adigun
Katie Dale-Everett
Rebecca Evans
Nathan Geering
Tom Hobden
Laura Kriefman
James Middleton
Zach Walker & Jennifer Irons
Kerryn Wise

QuestLab Network 2018 artist residency at Studio Wayne McGregor. Film by Emma Crouch with additional content by Alicia Clarke, Camilla Greenwell, Gilbert McCarragher, Roundhouse and Random International.

QuestLab Network opened up multiple new professional avenues for me as an artist and developed my thinking both artistically and strategically, challenging me to test out new approaches to creating work and collaborating within a supported environment. I would 100% recommend it!

'Eye opening and inspiring. Felt like it plugged me into a network of makers who were all looking at how to challenge the way dance is made and experienced.'

'QuestLab Network has developed my access and networks to partners and funding that I did not have or did not know how to approach in the past.'

'Being part of the QuestLab Network has been such an enriching and inspiring experience for me as an artist/researcher. It has allowed me to make fantastic contacts across academia and industry, and has given me the time and expertise to rethink several elements of how I approach my digital practice as a dance artist. I have also had the mentoring and support to reconsider how I present my work to audiences, venues and promoters. The legacy of this network will continue to inform and impact on my work going forward and I wholeheartedly recommend this programme to anyone with an interest in developing innovation across dance and technology.'
