About King’s Cultural Community

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
