We're a practice-led research centre where knowledge is conceived as co-constructed through action. We characterise this as practice with theory and theory with practice: praxis.

We are situated in Goldsmiths Department of Educational Studies and are dedicated to the practical and theoretical exploration of learning practices across the arts within diverse social and cultural contexts. Research into the arts and learning includes visual and performing arts, design, media and communications, all incorporating traditional and emerging technologies.
The work of the centre engages with aspects of aesthetics, creativity, ethics and advocacy, and celebrates, as well as questions, learner identities and learning communities.
The centre provides an exciting opportunity for scholars and students across the arts and with a commitment to learning to advance research in this field. We welcome research students from home and overseas who wish to undertake postgraduate study with us. The centre currently houses a number of funded research projects and its members are actively engaged in research publications. For more details on ESRC/SeNSS scholarships.
