Hubs & networks

Hubs

A series of hubs create an interface with London and bring together thematic areas of research and education.

The Arts, Health & Wellbeing hub brings together academics, students and healthcare professionals around King’s with an interest in the intersection between arts and health. King’s distinctive approach leverages the university’s cultural connections and the reach of King’s Health Partners to support innovative research, trial arts-based health interventions and support the development of the healthcare professionals of the future.

The Creative Digital Partnerships (virtual) hub will provide a means for creative industries and cultural partners, artists and King’s staff and students to design new digital outputs together, pool expertise and forge new relationships. Led by the Faculty of Arts & Humanities, the hub will use a range of co-production approaches to support King's Research, Education and Service ambitions through digital creative industries and related cultural partnerships in London and beyond. In turn, it will contribute to strengthening a community at King’s interested and engaged in digital creativity, and enhancing the university’s position at the intersection of the creative industries, higher education and cultural engagement.

In March 2020 King’s College London temporarily closed Science Gallery London in line with UK Government guidelines in response to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. Like many other organisations we are continuing to manage the challenges presented by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. For the remainder of 2021, all Science Gallery London spaces remain temporarily adapted to support on-campus learning for King’s students. King’s remains committed to engaging our communities with research with purpose; to the ongoing development of King's Cultural Community; and to pioneering collaborations in arts and science that enhance education and research. We continue to deliver cultural programmes both digitally and on-campus. King’s is and remains a member of the Science Gallery Global Network. King’s is pleased to confirm that Science Gallery London will reopen from Spring 2022. We look forward to sharing plans for the relaunch of Science Gallery London as King’s inclusive, interdisciplinary hub for discovery in art, health and science later in 2021.
