The Arts and Culture team work across the colleges and campuses of the University of Exeter, and with creative partners around the South West region and beyond. Our mission is to Activate Creativity.
Our Vision is a programme of activity with creativity at the heart of all we think, imagine and do together. By providing time and space for provocative and purposeful engagement across and between different disciplines, places and audiences, we will stimulate new approaches to research and enhance the student experience, whilst playing a leading role in the social, cultural and economic development of the South West region and beyond.
We have recently developed a new Arts and Culture Strategy, which you can read more about below.
If you have any queries, you can contact the Arts and Culture team.
Arts and Culture Strategy
From 2018, our strategy has three aims:
Aim 1 – Develop Purposeful Encounters
We will test and develop ways of collaborating that enrich teaching and learning, enhance research potential and connect partners through innovative, structured encounters between academics, students, cultural practitioners and organisations.
Aim 2 – Enrich our Cultural Environment
We will develop the conditions for a diverse, creative and internationally relevant artistic and cultural environment.
Aim 3 – Unlock Resources and Potential
We will maximise the benefit and visibility of the University's Arts and Culture offer with flexible and creative use of existing and potential skills and facilities.
