Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why has Peninsula Arts changed to The Arts Institute?
Over the last 14 years Peninsula Arts has evolved significantly and truly found its place in the city's art and cultural offer and aspirations. The academic research that uncovers, challenges and experiments, lies at the heart of what we do, and the name The Arts Institute articulates and represents this more closely. This is a University arts programme that welcomes an audience of all ages and backgrounds to experience contemporary and cutting-edge arts. 2. Will Peninsula Arts cease to exist?
Only in name. The people and programme of exhibition, film, talks, music and performance remain, but as The Arts Institute.
You'll still find us in the Roland Levinsky Building and still hosting our key partners Literature Works and Plymouth Culture. All our regular events remain in the season and you can still pick up the Guide to find out what's on.
3. What will happen to the current research Arts Institute?
The research portfolio will continue just as before but now has a broader remit. The public season will operate under the umbrella of the existing Arts Institute with Professor James Daybell continuing as Director of the research portfolio, alongside Dr Sarah Chapman, Artistic Director of the public programme.
4. How will the name change affect me?
It won't, however you will see the new name and logo on all of our material including the brochure and website.
