About Us


Arts and Culture at the University of Exeter

Arts & Culture actvity is supported through promotion of arts and culture events, and care of the University's fine art collections.  Additionally advice is given to students, staff and researchers who are involved in arts activities.

A varied arts and culture programme engages a range of audiences through exhibitions, performances, festivals and guest lectures, many in our purpose-built venues on campus.

With a strategic approach, Arts and Culture inputs into the research agenda by brokering collaborations between artists and researchers of all disciplines and fostering artistic impacts of research.

The University also works collaboratively with other arts organisations in Exeter, regionally and nationally and with other universities.
