Arts, Design and Media Archives

The Arts, Design and Media Archives house a wealth of inspiration for artistic practice across all disciplines. Whilst used in traditional academic research, they are under-utilised as a source of inspiration by creative practitioners. Our aim is to awaken students to the creative possibilities offered by our collections across a wide range of disciplines as well as to increase the visibility and accessibility of its materials to students across the Faculty of Arts, Design and Media and creative practitioners beyond the University.
