Art & Design: History, Practice & Theory

Staff Success

We have a dynamic team of research active staff in the School of Art, Architecture & Design at Leeds Beckett University with individuals winning the Contemporary Art Society Annual Award, being shortlisted for the Global Fine Art awards, the Paul Hamlyn Visual Awards, and being selected to exhibit at the Venice Biennale in 2017.

Visiting Speaker Series Annual Research Symposiums

We have a lively visiting speaker programme that includes the prestigious INSIDE/OUT lecture series whose mission is to bring the best minds of our generation to inspire and support the work students and staff do across the School. To this end, we have flown in renowned speakers from around the globe. In order to enhance the cultural life of Leeds, we make the lecture series open to the general public. Annual research symposiums have taken place at Leeds Art Gallery, the Tetley Arts Centre and the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London.

Research Centre

We have founded the Leeds Arts Research Centre (LARC) to showcase the work of our academics.


Many of our staff generate research income and have been successfully awarded grants from Arts Council England and the British Council.
