The new UAL Decolonising Arts Institute seeks to challenge colonial and imperial legacies and drive social, cultural and institutional change.
We imagine the Institute as a de-centred, disruptive, evolving and porous space. We aim to create interdisciplinary collaborations and research-driven projects through partnerships across UAL and beyond.
The Institute is in its pilot year, with plans to launch in autumn 2020.
