The Institute is a hub for creative arts practice at Newcastle University.
Our aim is to promote the work and activities of the creative arts practitioners working at the University. These include artists, composers, performers, film makers, creative writers, curators, architects, entrepreneurs and thinkers.
The Institute also works to provide undergraduate and postgraduate students with a vibrant and creative environment in which to develop and grow their own practice.
The Institute’s work with
cultural organisations both locally and internationally ensures that the
University engages fully with the communities which it serves.
