Arts Committee

Supporting and promoting the Arts within the University and the wider community.

The Arts Committee, or Standing Committee of Senate on the Arts, is a large committee representing the wide artistic interests of the University and local community.  The Committee is made up of both student representatives and staff.

We provide grants (and guarantees against loss) for Arts initiatives across the university, in response to applications from staff and students.

Recent examples of initiatives supported include

  • Events at MERL and at the URE museum
  • Concerts and musical accompaniments, plus related events
  • Exhibitions to display arts related materials
  • Science Slam and related events

We also support art-related collections held by the University in the form of a small bursary (£750) to support a student to work under the direction of a member of staff on cataloguing and conservation projects.

We meet once a term, and a steering group convenes a week before the committee to consider the applications and request further information from applicants as necessary.  Applications should be submitted by the deadlines given below.

Meeting dates for Academic Year 2015/16

17th November 2016; deadline for applications is 7th November 2016

9th February 2017; deadline for applications is 30th January 2017
