Know-How marks the beginning of the University of Bath’s 50th anniversary year as a higher education institution, and takes inspiration from 2016 being the 500th anniversary of Utopia, the text in which Sir Thomas More depicts a society based on a communality of possessions.

Events are led by local residents, contributing artists and UoB’s campus community.

Contributing artists/collectives to Know-How include Avant Gardening, Emma Smith, Gayle Chong Kwan, Sandra Porter, Sovay Berriman, Vulpes Vulpes, LOW PROFILE and multi–disciplinary design practice The DecoratorsWill Shannon contributes elements of exhibition design.
