Nurturing the creative potential of collaborations between teachers, students, researchers, their institutions and groups beyond academia is central to the AWP's mission. We are especially proud of the many and on-going projects we are involved in that connect art institutions to the latest fronts in practice-led research.

The founding team are long-term partners in several independent, artist-run groups with international profiles:

Wild Pansy Press
Information As Material

Recent institutional collaborators have included:

British Library
Centre for the Comparative History of Print
Highlights Rural Touring Scheme
Tate Library and Archives
The Tetley
V&A, National Art Library 

The AWP also develops partnerships and opportunities for students, ranging from internships and industrial placements to presenting new work to the student-led NotForSale Press.
