The University of Southampton
Winchester Centre for Global Futures in Art Design & Media


The Winchester Centre undertakes research. This means a prolonged, demanding interrogation of materials, practices and ideas undertaken rigorously and carefully, and presenting the results for public scrutiny.

As is the case with all research, some of our work is extremely specialised, some is undertaken at the blue-skies level of open-ended and unconstrained brainstorming, and some is undertaken to solve specific problems or to meet specific needs. The variety of these activities is an important aspect of the research environment. A core concern is the relevance of our work for professionals, creators and the public. We engage in partnerships and in public discussion to maximise both the impact of our research, and the quality and relevance of the work we do.

The Centre launched its series of talks and conferences in October 2011. Details of past and present events can be found by clicking the tab on the left. Ongoing funded research is also linked on the left. In addition, fellows undertake a number of activities, including public speaking, consultancies, participation in professional associations, and in public life. Details can be found in the Impact section.
