About Culture Lab

The hub for research in digital creative practice and film practice at Newcastle University.

The Culture Lab Building Entrance

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.
