Creative Partnerships

Creative Partnerships is an experimental and collaborative cross-School department, which facilitates and enhances our engagement outside of the School. This includes programming for public events and festivals, collaborations with cultural and third sector partners, and industry focused events and forums. They also manage the School’s participation in Culture Mile and funding for new concepts and ideas through incubation and seed funding. 

If you’d like to collaborate, get in touch with our Creative Partnerships & Programme Manager Jo Chard

Learning Partnerships

Incubation, R&D and funding

The School has a number of funding opportunities for staff, students and alumni which seek to encourage innovation and entrepreneurialism. We also run incubation and support programmes for small arts businesses which aim to upskill and develop the expertise and capability of the industry’s workforce to develop sustainable business models.  

Public Engagement

The School runs a number of talk programmes focused on the creative industries and research engagement. These aim to encourage discussion and reflection on changes in the sector and broader industry.
