About us

Peninsula Arts

Peninsula Arts is the wide-ranging public arts programme of Plymouth University, catering to many and varied audiences, raising aspirations and enriching lives through high-quality cultural experiences.

It hosts the largest contemporary art gallery in Plymouth; the Jill Craigie Cinema; The House and its cutting edge performance programme; a year-long series of fascinating talks that open up the world of history and contemporary culture and a rich classical and contemporary music programme

We are invested in the cultural development of the city and provide support for creative initiatives, projects and festivals that attract new voices to the region and showcase the wealth of talent within Plymouth.

'Visions' season

Peninsula Arts team of programmers including academics, experts in their fields and artists follow a theme each season that brings together various events and allows them to not only provide different interpretations to this theme but allow you to explore these themes and experience different art forms.

The summer programme is centred on the theme of 'Visions'. Artists have long been associated with having visionary outlooks, whether inspired by dreams or questioning existing ideas, we have come to expect artists and creative thinkers to provide new ways of understanding and seeing the world. Our programmers and academic colleagues, working with Plymouth Museums Galleries Archives, have sought to bring together a vibrant programme of films, talks, exhibitions, performances and music events that open up new opportunities to engage with the visions, both historical and contemporary, that have changed the way we experience the world.
