Leeds as a city has a diverse and exciting cultural offer, which provides us with a fantastic opportunity to develop our research in partnership with cultural partners. There are a wealth of galleries, performance venues, local museums in addition to the national Royal Armouries museum, and numerous heritage sites.
Our School works closely with many cultural institutions and organisations regionally, nationally and internationally. The University has Memoranda of Agreement with Opera North and with The Hepworth Wakefield, as well as having a long-standing relationships with Leeds Museums and Galleries, the City Art Gallery, The Tetley and Pavilion.
Academics and students in the School engage with other partners across the globe regularly, which results in new projects, conferences and exhibitions.
