Peninsula Arts is the wide-ranging public arts programme of Plymouth University, playing a pivotal role in building culture and art in the city and South West region, supporting established, new and emerging artists from around the world. The programme includes exhibitions, dance, films, music, performance and talks.

It hosts the largest contemporary art gallery in Plymouth; a diverse range of classic films and contemporary cinematic masterpieces screened in the Jill Craigie Cinema; a cutting edge theatre and dance programme in The House; musical performances and concerts including its resident orchestra, the Peninsula Arts Sinfonietta, and a year-long series of fascinating talks that open up the world of history and contemporary culture.

Open to all Plymouth University students and the public.

'Voices' season

Peninsula Arts looks to support new and undiscovered cultural voices, as well as bringing those internationally renowned voices to the region and this is explored in this season’s programme.

In discussing how voices interpret and give new meaning to our shared cultural experiences, we looked at how artists and researchers provide a critical voice to help uncover new ways of seeing and understanding the world. We wanted to ensure you could transcend an individual cultural experience by adding depth to your own investigation of what this might mean by having the opportunity to visit various art-forms.
