HOW DO YOU CONNECT THE FINEST MINDS ACROSS ACADEMIA, ARTS AND CULTURE?
Bring them together in one place.
In 2011, King’s College London set out a new ambition: to be a pioneer in cultural partnerships.
Culture at King’s is led by Deborah Bull, Director, Cultural Partnerships. We’re developing new ways to enhance the academic and student experience and, at the same time, add value and deliver benefits across the fields of arts and culture.
Our two cultural hubs, Cultural Institute at King’s and Science Gallery London at King’s bring our aim to life. Each forms the centre of a programme of activity that radiates out across our schools and campuses. We’re keen to challenge preconceived ideas of art and culture and encourage new ways of thinking.
Cultural Institute at King’s, established in September 2012, connects us with practitioners, producers, policymakers and participants across arts and culture. In 2012/13, in projects ranging from digital prototypes to site-specific performances, we worked with
• over 150 academics
• 220 students
• more than 200 artists and cultural organisations.
We also brokered 15 internships in the sector and engaged with audiences of over 47,000 people.
Science Gallery London at King’s is scheduled to open on the Guy’s Campus in early 2016. Part of the Global Science Gallery Network, it will create a new space where art and science collide. We wish to: engage 15-25 year olds
- provide opportunities to develop students’ skills
- connect with local communities
- enhance the local environment for hospital patients, visitors and staff.
