We make art.
We help other people make art. We run spaces where you can make art.
Little Lost Robot CIC is a not for profit collective of social practice artists. We make immersive and interactive, digital and playable art that strives to bring visibility to the risks to the standard of living for othered communities. We demystify uses of creative technology to reimagine everyday life that is accommodating to the scope of needs felt by real people. We present an accessible vision of the future that is gloriously humane in all its messy domestic parts.
Little Lost Robot CIC designs and builds carefully engineered, immersive, structural artwork with recycled materials, metalwork fabrication and sculptural sewing. Our work is accessible and playable. We use creative technology to fuse approachable art and design with digital programming to discuss issues around inclusion and belonging. Our expertise is in installing large-scale, free-standing, outdoor artwork installations, and set design and build for touring circus and outdoor theatre. We have a wealth of background experience building work for UK festivals and public community events. We are known for our custom installation artworks for exhibits by clients like Chester Zoo, Hampton Court Palace and Wakehurst Kew Royal Botanical Gardens.
We use our community maker spaces to codesign and put together these artworks with our artists in residence, student internships and public visitors. In this way we skill share and provide access and training in creative skills. We also provide specialist business development support and advice around arts funding and resources. We work closely with the Bath and North East Somerset Council – Regeneration Project to run our operations out of vacant units. We occupy and care for empty spaces and bring life and active productivity back into otherwise closing down areas. We use social practice, creative skills and our experience with embedded community development to help support reinvigoration within existing communities. We work with local creatives, social history and aim to develop confidence in existing skills and create pathways into building creative careers.
We regularly offer artist residencies in our venues. Depending on individuals’ needs we offer focussed packages around studio space, business development and funding support. To hear about our up to date opportunities please follow our channels or sign up for our newsletter.
