Culture Lab lets members engage in experimental and cross-disciplinary projects in creative digital arts. Members work in technologically rich and custom designed environments. It's home to Digital Cultures Studio and Film@CultureLab.

Digital Cultures Studio

The Digital Cultures Studio is a centre for creative digital practice. The research group includes:

  • artists
  • designers
  • musicians
  • performers 

Researchers' work in the Digital Cultures Studio is experimental and engaged with contemporary technology.


Film@CultureLab is a new centre for Film Practice. It provides a space for the meeting of:

  • creative vision
  • aesthetic innovation
  • critical thinking

This leads to the production of distinctive forms of cinematic art.

Film@cultureLab also houses the Film Praxis Screening and Seminar Series. This is a forum for exploring film as a practice-based endeavour. Leading film and moving image practitioners and theorists present and discuss film-work.
