Cultural & Creative Industries Exchange will expand its work and launch the Cultural Institute with a full and enhanced programme of activities in October 2016.
The Institute will provide a gateway to all things cultural at the University and help to boost our engagement with the cultural and creative industries sectors for the benefit of research, student education and cultural and creative production. We will continue to broker relationships between Leeds academics and an extended network of partner organisations.
We hope you will join us to learn more about how the Cultural Institute will boost our ability to work with partners on the co-creation of research which addresses the global problems of today, increase opportunities for students to engage with the creative and cultural sector, and open up
our cultural facilities and resources to a wider audience.
