The arts, culture and science
Culture and the arts have a unique capacity to make us aware of our relationship with ourselves and others, our world, and the age we live in. They offer support in the quest for meaning, direction and belonging, and contribute to problem-solving in society.
Lund University has an extensive arts and cultural scene, encompassing all disciplines. You can access learning and research within visual arts, music, theatre, film and literature, among other things.
The University’s cultural activities, museums and archives constitute significant infrastructures for the University’s students, teachers and research staff. They are used by many fields, not only those with close links to cultural activities. Several of the activities also play a major and important role for schools in the region.
Public operations and open events
You are welcome to visit our museums, and many of our collections are open to the public. Lund University also has a large range of exhibitions, concerts and other cultural events that are open to all.
Our aim as a university is that knowledge and skills within culture and the arts work with other disciplinary research domains. The complex challenges facing our society demand interdisciplinary collaboration both within the University and beyond.
Lund University contributes to this collaboration as a comprehensive institution with a broad presence in artistic and knowledge formation.
Strategy for cultural collaboration
Lund University has adopted a strategy for cultural collaboration, covering the period 2018–2026.
