Our Vision

Our vision is to develop and promote the Newcastle University Institute for Creative Arts Practice as a world class hub for creative arts research, learning and teaching with significant impact regionally, nationally and internationally.

The Institute supports activity within current disciplinary strengths while actively seeking to foster interdisciplinary initiatives within the University and with a broad range of external partners.

The Institute’s core aims are:

  • To catalyse, support and enhance collaborative research activities in the creative arts, including the development and submission of major funding bids
  • To create a unique learning experience for undergraduate and postgraduate students in the creative arts through innovative pedagogy, flexible postgraduate programmes and specialist research training
  • To develop mutually beneficial and sustainable partnerships with external organisations regionally, nationally and internationally interested in fostering and furthering creative arts research
  • To establish a distinctive and highly marketable identity for creative arts practice at Newcastle University.
