Bringing together students, staff and alumni at King’s who engage with arts and culture
Across King’s nine faculties and beyond the university, an inclusive cultural community brings together artists, cultural partners and the vast number of staff, students and alumni who engage with arts and culture in different ways.
These partnerships and collaborations enhance research and drive innovation, enrich education through original learning opportunities and serve the needs of the cultural sector and, more broadly, of society. In doing so they help King’s to deliver on the commitments set out in the university’s Vision 2029.
King’s aims to nurture and enhance this cultural community, recognising that anyone can be a part of it, whether their engagement with culture is through the curriculum or co-curricular activities, in research partnerships, student-led initiatives, through volunteering, or simply for fun.
King’s cultural strategy is overseen by the university’s Senior Advisory Fellow for Culture, Baroness Deborah Bull. Beatrice Pembroke, Executive Director for Culture, together with Directors Alison Duthie (Programmes) and Dan Walker (Operations & Planning) provide leadership for the Culture team and Science Gallery London.

The Culture team is led by the needs of the cultural community and aims to support faculty and student priorities across research, education and service to deliver the ambitions set out in King’s Vision 2029.
The Culture team includes sector specialists with expertise in collaborative education, research and innovation, public programming, partnerships, cultural engagement and cultural policy. A regular series of programmes, developed to support faculty and student needs, are available each year.

The team works in three ways:
The Culture team helps to join up, surface and support the cultural community and its activities, celebrating achievements and communicating success.
The Culture team aims to add value to the cultural community by brokering connections, convening collaborations, building capacity and matching curatorial and artistic input with the high quality of academic ideas.
The Culture team showcases the work of the cultural community and delivers a small number of flagship programmes that exemplify the community in action.
