The Arts and Conflict Hub based in the Department of War Studies at King's provides a focal point for work exploring the relationship between the arts and conflict, including visual arts, dance, music, theatre and film. Using artistic mediums to communicate, teach and research the complexities of conflict we aim to expand the interdisciplinary agenda of war studies, opening new dialogues and engaging new audiences.
The hub aims to bring artists and scholars together to share their work and ideas fostering a space for creative collaboration. In order to achieve this we have two main activities:
Buidling on our successful Leverhulme Artists in Residents, we will expand our events to include screenings, performances and recitals with post event discussions with artists and academics.
Develop innovative modules for our BA and MA programmes that integrate a diverse range of the arts.
