School of Performance and Cultural Industries

The intensive rainfall and flooding in Leeds, West Yorkshire, and the North of England over the recent holidays in 2015 have captured public attention around the country and demonstrated once again that climate change due to global warming is devastating homes, businesses, and people’s lives. The impact of climate change is without question the major environmental challenge facing citizens, cities, and countries today. While governments pursue scientific and technological solutions, how are arts and cultural organisations responding to the threat? What, if any, contribution might the arts and culture make to the solutions?

 

The School of Performance and Cultural Industries at the University of Leeds invites applications for PhD study on a project to investigate the role of arts and cultural organisations in environmental sustainability. Taking a case-study based approach, the project will explore how arts organisations contribute to sustainable development thinking in their missions, values, creative practices, and projects. The project will begin with a case study of East Street Arts in Leeds, identifying at least two additional arts organisations for further study.

School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies

The newly formed Centre for Audio Visual Experimentation (C.A.V.E.) at Leeds University welcomes applications from artists and/or art historians who wish to develop their practice through PhD study. The School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies is known for its ground-breaking interdisciplinary approach to both theory and practice and is committed to supporting projects that critically elaborate the relationships between both of these within a radically expanded discourse of contemporary art.

 

Though ‘sound studies’ is widely recognized as a field of inquiry within the Humanities, certain analytical assumptions about the sonic have in fact, further isolated sound and aural experience. By striking audio technologies with and against their visual counterparts (including the modes of thought provoked by such striking) this doctoral project should be focused on the task of unpicking the relationships between the ambient sounds, languages and technologies of a university based  art school in the twenty-first century.

 

This PhD scholarship is open to both practising artists and theorists and applicants must be committed to interdisciplinary ways of working.
