Centre for Culture and the Arts


Centre for Culture and the Arts

The Centre for Culture and the Arts was founded in 2013. Located within the Faculty of Arts and Environment, it brings together researchers from across our University working in the Arts, Humanities and Culture.

Our Aims:

  • Act as a focus of interdisciplinary and collaborative research in culture and the arts;
  • Encourage interdisciplinary forms and modes of delivery of research in culture and the arts;
  • Promote participation in culture and the arts for all those interested;
  • Challenge the current climate of austerity in which culture and the arts are increasingly becoming the preserve of the privileged;
  • Develop links locally and further afield with arts and cultural institutions, partner organisations and other interested parties.
