Arts, Culture And Wellbeing Arts & Culture

It’s a varied and exciting role, and I can find myself working on everything from event logistics and evaluation to finance to collection care. A key part of my job is to stay on top of what everyone is doing and keep an eye out for any support needed. We are firm believers that great ideas come from playing with possibilities. Creativity is driven by a sense of possibility; it is the process of using imagination and critical thinking to generate new ideas that have value.

Jacob Jordaens was a Flemish painter, draughtsman and tapestry designer known for his history paintings, genre scenes and portraits. After Peter Paul Rubens and Anthony van Dyck, he was the leading Flemish Baroque painter of his day. Unlike those contemporaries he never travelled abroad to study Italian painting, and his career is marked by an indifference to their intellectual and courtly aspirations. In fact, except for a few short trips to locations elsewhere in the Low Countries, he remained in Antwerp his entire life. As well as being a successful painter, he was a prominent designer of tapestries. Like Rubens, Jordaens painted altarpieces, mythological, and allegorical scenes, and after 1640—the year Rubens died—he was the most important painter in Antwerp for large-scale commissions and the status of his patrons increased in general.

We invest public money from government and the National Lottery to make sure everyone’s creativity is given the chance to flourish and we all have access to a remarkable range of high quality cultural experiences. I am Senior Lecturer in Literary Studies at the University of Exeter, and Academic Director for Arts & Culture . I have active research and teaching interests at the intersections of the arts, humanities and natural/social sciences, and frequently collaborate with artists and researchers on a range of transdisciplinary projects. I have a background in museum and gallery learning with a particular focus on creativity and the creative process. My role is to steer and guide the delivery of the Arts and Culture strategy. This involves lots of great conversations with fascinating people – both inside and outside the university – quite a bit of planning and writing, many meetings, and occasional workshop delivery.

I’m also responsible for raising our profile both internally at the University, and externally to the local community and further afield. We’ve pulled together the facts that show the value of art and culture to individuals, communities and society as a whole.

The value of arts and culture to people and society outlines the existing evidence on the impact of arts and culture on our economy, health and wellbeing, society and education. However, we also understand that arts and culture has a wider, more measurable impact on our economy, health and wellbeing, society and education.
