Pioneering research with our partners
The Cultural Institute has three main aims: to increase pioneering research collaborations with creative sector partners, to widen cultural engagement and participation and to 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.
The Russian Revolution in 1917 dramatically changed the course of world history. This exhibition explores the eyewitness accounts of British families who were caught up in the tumultuous event.
A touring art exhibition celebrating the sculpture and drawings of Kenneth Armitage in the 1950s. Guest curated by Ann Elliott and supported by the Kenneth Armitage Foundation.
This exhibition celebrates ‘katagami’: Japanese resist dyeing stencils. Although produced simply as tools, in recent years the katagami have come to be appreciated as beautiful objects themselves.
