Exchange Exhibitions & Events

The Exchange is a space for collaboration and innovation: a place where research from across the social sciences is communicated in new and exciting ways, to staff and students from King’s and beyond 

Our exhibitions, events and installations demonstrate the breadth and depth of our research in SSPP and the impact that our scholars have on understanding society, our environment and economy at a time of great change.  

Many of our activities in The Exchange bring together artists with scholars, to explore the intersection between the social sciences and the arts. 

We aim to create an interactive, inclusive and inspiring space that supports the exchange of knowledge.
