Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts is an interdisciplinary arts hub connecting University of Sussex with Brighton & Hove and the wider national and international arts communities. The centre will present a programme of contemporary arts – including music, theatre, dance, live art and digital practices.
The programme and the work at the centre will be guided by the values championed by 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 is the patron of Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts.
The centre will support innovation in research, teaching and community engagement through its artistic programmes and artist residencies facilitated across university departments.
