EUniverCities Network Meeting: Arts and Culture

About this event

EUniverCities Network Meeting – Exeter 2022: Arts and Culture image

Dates: Tuesday 7 June - Thursday 9 June 2022

Location: University of Exeter and Exeter city centre


The cultural and creative industries are increasingly important in terms of turnover and workforce, both in the EU and the United Kingdom. The arts and culture ‘offer’ is also a key part of what attracts students and workers to urban centres, and brings together our communities.

This meeting of the EUniverCities network aims to look at how cities and universities can work together to support arts and culture in their local areas. What kinds of collaboration between these institutions and grassroots cultural organisations work best? What kinds of funding opportunities are available? How can arts and culture be employed to foster equality, diversity and inclusion, and to support other policy agendas such as Net Zero? And how can culture help to integrate students into their local communities?
