The Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts collaborates closely with surrounding cultural institutions, the cultural society and schools to provide and stimulate artistic activities and work opportunities for our students.
Many of the faculty's teachers also work outside the university and have extensive experience of collaborations, which benefits competence development among our employees.
Inter Arts Center
Inter Arts Center (IAC), as a part of the Faculty of Fine and Performing Arts at Lund University, is a platform for artistic research and experimentation. IAC’s mission includes to support and initiate interdisciplinary cooperation between artists, researchers and external partners as well as between the faculty and Lund University.
Examples of interdisciplinary cooperation within the university are its participation in the Narrating Climate Futures initiative and the Crocus education and research initiative on the Helsingborg campus. Beyond this, there are ongoing collaborations with the Humanities Lab and the Sound Environment Centre at the Faculties of Humanities and Theology (HT) as well as with the research facility European Spallation Source (ESS).
IAC is not only a meeting point and workplace with advanced technical equipment and space for the faculty and university's students, teachers and researchers but is also used for external collaborative projects. Every year up to 150 external artists and researchers take part in projects within the realms of visual arts, dance, music and theater at the IAC.
Lund University Cultural Strategy
In 2018, Lund University decided on a strategy on how artistic competencies to an even greater extent can contribute to increased success in education and research by working closer together with other scientific disciplines. The aim is also for Lund University to be naturally associated with artistic and cultural activities and the strategy is part of Lund University's Strategic Plan 2017-2026.
The cultural strategy presents actions within three different areas: cultural life, artistic knowledge and the university's public cultural activities.
