Peninsula Arts

Peninsula Arts is the wide-ranging public arts programme of Plymouth University and plays 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 the Peninsula Arts Sinfonietta, and a year-long series of fascinating talks that open up the world of history.

Open to all Plymouth University students and the public.

'Revolutionary Inventions' season at Peninsula Arts

Recognising that the revolutionary theme not only speaks to political change we asked our programmers and academic colleagues to think about revolution in terms of inventions – those life changing, ingenious and innovative inventions that alter the course of history forever. Of course technological inventions do not happen in isolation they are often linked to social and cultural shifts with one usually preceding the other. Our programme attempts to look at these cultural and technological connections.

It is also important to remember that inventions are just that – invented – they are constructs of human interactions and relations, borne out of questioning, observation, study and sometimes argument.
