The Centre for Arts, Memory and Communities

The Centre for Arts, Memory and Communities (CAMC) explores how the arts help us process the past and live well in the present. The Centre’s community of researchers explores historical, social and political dimensions of cultural production through academic and practice-based research. Its researchers employ diverse methods, practices and critical theories to explore and exploit the value of creativity in how we understand, connect and transform communities, enrich individual lives and, in doing so, create better futures.
