Hubs & networks

Hubs

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

Science Gallery London at Guy’s Campus offers a changing programme of exhibitions and events that address contemporary challenges through a collision of science and art. The Strand Cultural Quarter – including the Inigo Rooms in Somerset House East Wing and the Arcade and Exchange in Bush House – offer creative learning opportunities and imaginative research showcases, inviting local and wider communities to connect with King’s.

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.

A unique new facility at King’s College London, free to enter, where science and art collide.

The Strand Cultural Quarter currently exists as both a physical and programme-based hub. With a number of key spaces across the Strand Campus that are used on a regular basis for cultural activity, the projects presented across the quarter aim to maximise interdisciplinary work between Strand-based faculties, engage high profile key partners on a regular basis, and provide an ongoing cultural programme that is meaningful to students, the academic community and the sector, providing an effective platform to amplify King’s research and education.
