Aid & Abet

Aid & Abet was founded in 2010 by artists Sarah Evans, David Kefford and CJ Mahony. Since 2011 Aid & Abet has delivered a varied programme of exhibitions and events from a project space in Cambridge alongside a series of offsite projects across the UK that have enabled artists to experiment, take risks as well as collaborate and exchange.  This diverse artistic programme has encouraged participants to engage with cross-disciplinary practice in both creative and critical ways, fostering a three way relationship between artist, artwork and audience.

Aid & Abet is currently led by Sarah Evans and David Kefford.
