Cultural engagement

The Cultural Institute promotes and integrates the University’s outstanding cultural attractions, creative resources, performance and exhibition spaces.

We will continue to coordinate cultural activity on campus in 2017/18 with the theme Commemorating the First World War.

The University plays an important part in the cultural life of the region, and through the Cultural Institute we are backing the bid for Leeds to become the European Capital of Culture 2023 as its principal academic partner.
