About the Institute

Creative critical mass within a world-class research-intensive University.

We promote and support creative arts practice across the University.

We encourage people to collaborate and create work that has a truly global dimension. 

A vibrant & creative research environment 

We believe in the intrinsic value of creative practice. This is demonstrated by the performance of creative practice subjects areas in various iterations of the Research Excellence Framework. The work undertaken at Newcastle University makes a meaningful contribution to several fields and much of it is world-leading. 

Our people 

Our staff are acclaimed artists, composers, performers, filmmakers, creative writers, curators, architects, entrepreneurs and thinkers. Our students, as creative innovators, also bring varied international perspectives to creative practice.
