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.
