Luke Jerram is valued for his ability to generate and clearly communicate new ideas. From artworks to television programmes, products and even architecture, Jerram applies his creativity to any subject matter, situation or problem. Luke is currently working with several organisations to develop new artworks for them.
Birmingham Museums Trust
In 2015, Luke Jerram was commissioned by Birmingham Museums Trust to develop a series of art proposals that connect and animate all the museums across the city. One of these works will be presented in the city in 2018.
University of Sheffield
In 2015, with a grant from the Arts Council of England, Luke supported 2 local artists to develop their work for the KREBS Festival at University of Sheffield. Luke also made this giant E.coli artwork and a glass Mitochondrion for the festival.
Consultant to Royal Shakespeare Company
From 2009-2011 Jerram worked with the Events and Exhibitions Department at the RSC to help them deliver their arts strategy. Their mission was to excite and stimulate existing and new audiences about Shakespeare and the work of the company by exploring and deepening the connection between the audience, Shakespeare, the Company and the contemporary world.
Generated in 3 days, several concepts were developed that responded to the organisation’s brief. Two art projects were then selected by the RSC and commissioned including ‘My RSC Gallery’.
