Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts is an interdisciplinary arts hub connecting University of Sussex with wider regional, national and international arts communities. The centre presents a seasonal programme of performance, dance, live art, film, music, discussion & debate and digital practices.
Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts is guided by the values championed by Sir Richard Attenborough (former chancellor of University of Sussex) in his life and work: human rights, social justice, creative education and access to the arts for all. Michael Attenborough CBE is the patron of Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts.
As part of the University of Sussex, Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts supports innovation in research by academics and works regularly with the campus community to support teaching, student projects and conferences. Wider community and artistic engagement takes place through an interdisciplinary artistic programme and artist residencies, reaching a wide range of audiences and supporting a set of creative practitioners.
