LU Arts


Radar is LU Arts contemporary arts strand, delivering a high quality programme of artistic outputs which inspire participation and debate through cross disciplinary working with artists and academics. The activity engages with research and uses it as a stimulus to inform and develop new projects. The programme has a commitment to working with artists whose practice is located within the public sphere and work is presented across the campus and town. Audiences are able to engage with ideas and issues both through the artistic outputs and an accompanying series of discursive events.
