Arts Research Impact at Warwick

Impact through creativity

We enrich tomorrow with cultural understanding, historical context and human expression.

Our research has informed policy, changed practices and brought attention to crucial world issues. Our projects have benefited local communities, and made a difference on an international scale. Through collaborative exhibitions, artworks, plays, scripts, books, television shows and events, we have engaged audiences of thousands, as well as informing both industry and government.
