2013 University of Leeds - Antigone

Partner University

The School of Performance and Cultural Industries of the University of Leeds offers a unique combination of inter-related disciplines within a research-intensive university environment.  Our high quality research-led teaching engages students at the cutting edge of knowledge as it is developed.The School is concerned not only with performance itself but also with the role that performance plays in the wider cultural and creative life of society.  Performance harnesses the emotions, engages the intellect and develops creativity, whether it is found in the theatre, on the street, in the mass media or in the local community.  
In contemporary society, we are all performers, critics, consumers and audiences.Our graduates are leaders and catalysts in their chosen fields, and our research has demonstrable impact on the professional worlds of performance, policy-making, and the cultural and creative industries.  The School has strong relationships with a wide range of high profile regional, national and international cultural organisations. We actively promote enterprise as part of the learning experience.
