The Cultural University

Our aim is to offer culture to students and members of staff, to support projects where art and science meet, and to collaborate with cultural organisations in the surrounding community.

Culture at Linnaeus University

We work to make Linnaeus University a university where culture is present. This can be achieved in many different ways. You will encounter art wherever you go, both indoors and outdoors. You can also be invited to lunch concerts, theatre performances, or exhibitions.

Art and science

When art and science meet, exciting things happen. A dissertation can be illustrated through dancing. A researcher and a director can jointly produce a performance lecture. Artists and researchers can meet in an exhibition or a workshop. A researcher’s results can be made into an art installation. Scientific findings can enhance the experience at a concert.

The dancing dissertation with the title “Entreprenurship in school – changed ideals” directed by Anna Eklund and Liv Trulsson. (In Swedish)

We want to collaborate with cultural organisations in our surrounding community. If you have an idea, you are welcome to contact Kerstin Brodén. Contact information can be found in the column to the right.

We are already working on many collaboration projects. A few examples worth mentioning are Musiken och människan with Musica Vitae, performance lectures with Regionteatern Blekinge/Kronoberg, Kulturbryggan with Hofs Lifs, and the exhibition En låda på vinden together with Huseby bruk.

Linnaeus University is also part of the project Smålandstriennalen.
