Art & Design

This research Space includes research from all aspects of the history, theory and practice of art and design, working in collaboration with internationally renowned organisations, creative communities and practitioners to stimulate innovative practice and highlight the impact of artists and designers on us all. Taking advantage of the significant size of the Faculty of Culture and Creative Industries, researchers engage extensively with transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary projects with strong local, national and international impacts. Collaborations are sustained and are maintained within the public sector; including major international museums services; publicly funded art galleries; libraries; art and history archives, public record offices, county and city council arts development units, city planning units; cultural strategy groups; city re-generation agencies and a number of community arts projects.
