The Creative Manchester platform brings together and advances multi-disciplinary and impact-oriented research, supporting and developing research which utilises creative methods and practices, as well as building resources for researchers and students across The University of Manchester.
As a subject, Creativity is a broad church in which many people and organisations are at home. This is why we have three distinct research themes that invite people into conversation with us, as well as our Social Responsibility work with local and international communities on creative and cultural initiatives:
Our research theme exploring innovative research that can benefit local areas, create new jobs, and advance the industries as a whole.
Our research theme focusing on questions of climate change, community, and civil issues including minority groups and migrant experiences.
Our research theme exploring the tangible health benefits of the arts and creative practice.
Creative Manchester's work with diverse communities of people – of all ages, both local and international – on exciting initiatives and competitions.
