Our Story

Planet STEAM is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee.

Our purpose is to help people of all ages and backgrounds to understand and appreciate science by creating public artworks which explain today’s world and the complicated threats and opportunities we face as a society.

We produce high-quality participatory art projects which reach out to local people, including the underrepresented, vulnerable and disadvantaged.

Our projects use STEAM – Art in the centre of the STEM subjects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths – to educate and to promote social and environmental justice.

Our projects create focal points in our public spaces that people can build emotional connections to, thus improving our environment, communities and mental health.
