Leeds Arts University provides a space where researchers can develop innovative and creative lines of enquiry. Research-informed teaching inspires student achievement across our curricula. Our researchers contribute to the cultural landscape locally, nationally and internationally.
In order to meet our research goals, the University has developed a supportive infrastructure. Currently, we employ two Research Fellows to engage in their own practice and to mentor others. In addition, we have a large pool of academic staff who pursue their own research interests.
Our researchers specialise in many diverse fields; from surrealism to social practice and widening participation.
