Culture Lab at Newcastle

Research carried out at Culture Lab is interdisciplinary and practice-led. Artists work alongside engineers and social scientists in large open plan spaces that encourage exchange of ideas and collaboration. Theory informs practice, which in turn drives research. The outputs of our research, then, are as much books as they are artworks as prototypes, products, and spin out companies. Our research community consists of leading academics, post-doctoral fellows, and PhD candidates. Their work is funded by research councils, sponsored by industry, and seed-funded by university and regional strategic initiatives.
