School of Performance and Cultural Industries

The School of Performance and Cultural Industries creates new knowledge through the lens of performance, within the context of the arts and cultural industries.

We investigate the creation of cultural artefacts, movements and events, exploring how cultural activity changes the lives of artists, audiences and people in the wider world. Through performance we develop understanding about creativity and cultural activity, how it is applied in our everyday lives and its power to drive change.
