Actively engaging in education and enterprise
Critically concerned with art and design practices of making, thinking and representation, the Winchester Centre engages in education and enterprise, exploring the contribution of media, materials and technologies to the improvement of human societies globally.
Winchester Centre for Global Futures in Art Design and Media highlights historical, contemporary and future roles for art, design and media within globalization. Our main focus is on collaborations with international partners in public service, the creative industries and civil society.
In light of our attempts to build sustainable collaborations with local and regional partners, and dealing with national and international issues relevant globally, the Research Centre hosts Public Lectures, Seminars and Film Screenings. All events are issue-based and centred around globally relevant topics such as environment, society, politics, art and demographics. We invite high profile academics, artists, curators and filmmakers and create a platform for the local and regional communities to engage with these speakers.
Founded by Professors Bashir Makhoul, Jonathan Harris and Ryan Bishop, the Winchester Research Centre makes a decisive contribution to the innovative research initiatives of the School and of the University.
