Newcastle University exists to advance education and research and to help society tackle the many challenges it faces.
Culture and Creative arts
Our work in creative practice is world-renowned, with colleagues leading the field in poetry, folk and traditional music, fine art and heritage.
Arts and culture represent important areas of expertise for the University. We work with a wide range of cultural partners, collaborating on projects from creative programming to climate change, diversity and inclusion to data management, and from social justice to ageing well.
Our cultural venues, the Great North Museum: Hancock and the Hatton Gallery, are managed by Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums, showcasing our interdisciplinary research and enhancing our students’ experience, and engaging with diverse communities. Newcastle University’s Philip Robinson Library is home to our special collections and archives. We’re also working towards opening the Farrell Centre, a new museum and exhibition space celebrating architecture and planning.
From Newcastle, For the World
As a world-class university with a strong international community, we work with partners around the world to deliver research and education which has global impact.
We’re delighted to be sponsoring the Best International Collaboration award at the Journal Culture Awards 2022 to highlight the brilliant work of cultural organisations in the region and beyond.
