A new Cultural Institute for the University

A major new institute will boost engagement with the University's cultural assets and cultural partners.

The Cultural Institute, launched in October 2016, has three main aims: to increase pioneering research collaborations with our partners, to widen cultural engagement and participation and to create more opportunities to extend the knowledge and build the skills of our students.

We thrive on ideas from the creative and cultural sector and nurture partnership between arts professionals, researchers and students from all disciplines.

We are strengthening our position as a global centre of research and teaching excellence in culture, building sustainable partnerships in a city, region and nation rich in artistic innovation and cultural aspiration.
