Creative Collaborations

Creative Collaborations

We contribute to the vibrancy and cultural richness of our region.

We do this by applying our expertise in creative arts practice, culture and heritage.

Our Institute for Creative Arts Practice leads on our collaborations with culture and creative industries, working closely with our Humanities Research Institute.

Together they foster interdisciplinary initiatives that develop mutually beneficial and sustainable partnerships with cultural organisations regionally, nationally and internationally.

Exemplar collaborations

Our global research and education strength in culture and creative arts is supported locally. This is through exemplar collaborations with partners from:

  • our University museum
  • the Great North Museum (in partnership with Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums)
  • the Hatton Art Gallery (in partnership with Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums)
  • the campus-based theatre Northern Stage
  • our graduate programme ‘Collective Studio’ with The NewBridge Project

'Wor Culture' network

'Wor Culture' is a forum for discussing issues relating to the culture and creative sectors in the North East, and contribute to shaping its future. The gathering is facilitated by Newcastle University with topics proposed by the sector. To find out more and join in the debate visit the 'Wor Culture' blog.

Delivering real benefits

Through our strategic relationships we can develop truly collaborative projects that deliver real benefits to the cultural and creative industries.

Together we can develop:

  • knowledge exchange activities
  • research and teaching collaborations
  • collaborative PhD studentships
  • co-curation of new exhibitions
  • student placements and experiential learning opportunities

By bringing organisations, artists, students and academics together we create value both in economic and cultural terms, regionally and nationally.
