2019/2020 Fellowships AnnouncedNews Fellowships
The University of Exeter’s Arts and Culture strategy, aims to ‘place creativity at the heart of all we think, imagine and do together’. The Arts and Culture Fellowships are an important mechanism for putting our ambitions into practice, offering creative practitioners the opportunity to engage with innovative research across the University’s colleges and campuses.
For 2019/2020 we have brought together three creative practitioners with three different academics and their research projects. Taking place across our campuses, both host and creative fellow will work collaboratively over the next few months. They are:
Peepshows, Panoramas, Magic lanterns and Victorian Optical Devices
Based on our Streatham Campus, choreographer, artistic director and filmmaker Lea Anderson is working with Professor John Plunkett and the team at the Bill Douglas Cinema, to explore the museum's exquisite collection of 80,000 artefacts and items. With a particular focus on peepshow and Victorian lens-based devices, it is hoped the fellowship will offer up new ways of understanding this material and enrich the educational work that takes place at the museum.

Translating Data into Art

health and wellbeing.
