Trampoline is dedicated to the promotion of new technology art and artists and aims to present cutting edge art in an informal atmosphere; encouraging new artists to exhibit work to a real audience, whilst providing a platform for established artists working in new directions.
Trampoline began life in 1997 as Nottingham’s first ever platform event for new media art. In 2001, founders Miles Chalcraft and Anette Schäfer moved to Berlin and expanded Trampoline to Germany. Co-founder Gareth Howell continued Trampoline Nottingham throughout 2001 and 2002. Since then Trampoline has been left in the capable hands of a series of guest curators including Sharmila Cogger and Lizzy Whirrity, Nottingham art based collective, REACTOR and now Emma Lewis.
