Tinder for cultural collaboration – LU’s first major Culture Meeting

Since 2018, Lund University has had a special focus on integrating the arts and culture in teaching, research and external engagement through the “Strategy for Cultural Collaboration”.

Is LU a culture university? Can everyone utilise the arts and culture in their activities? We will examine these questions at LU’s first major Culture Meeting on 24 November.”

One of the goals of the Strategy is to utilise artistic resources and cultural activities to deepen, vitalise and create knowledge, and to be a creative element in innovative programmes and courses, and research collaborations. An important way to implement the Strategy is to give all LU staff members opportunities for collaboration across boundaries and to highlight the resources in the form of infrastructures that we can access.

You are therefore invited to the University’s first major Culture Meeting at the Birgit Rausing Hall, Skissernas Museum on Friday 24 November between 09:00 and 12:00.

At the meeting, several researchers and teaching staff members will present how they use the arts and culture to communicate and provide a deeper understanding of their research. We will also hear how art objects and collections can be utilised to promote new perspectives and in-depth learning and how LU participates in major European calls for applications concerning collaboration within culture and creative industries. Lund University’s collections will be presented to give inspiration for new elements in teaching and research.

This is a good opportunity to find out about some of the cultural collaborations at LU and get acquainted with our fantastic collections. Is LU a culture university? Can everyone utilise the arts and culture in their activities? We will examine these questions at the first major Culture Meeting.
