When & Where
King's Cultural Institute, in collaboration with King's College London Department of English
King’s Cultural Institute, under the direction of Deborah Bull, aims to create an effective bridge between King’s and the cultural and creative industries, providing leadership across King’s College London to extend and enrich its range of collaborative activities with artists, arts professionals, cultural organisations, creative industries and cultural policy makers. Our aim is to ensure that the College’s research expertise influences and impacts on cultural production, policy and practice and, in turn, that the knowledge and practice within the cultural sector informs and inspires new ways of thinking in the academic setting.
The establishment of King's Cultural Institute creates a distinctive first point of engagement for the cultural sector and enhanced, specialist support for King’s academics wishing to explore conversations and collaborations with individual artists and cultural organisations. By facilitating access to the College’s full range of research expertise and multi-disciplinary strength across its many Schools, we aim to generate new forms of engagement and collaboration, test new ideas, stimulate new partnerships and reach out to new audiences.
