Research and practice in arts and creative technologies

The School of Arts and Creative Technologies generates new knowledge through scholarly and practice research, through creative and professional practice, and through technical innovation.

We pursue a key strategic aim of the University of York, as a university for public good, by engaging in curiosity-driven and action-oriented research. Our work reaches beyond the academy, striving for positive impact through direct outreach to the public and through knowledge exchange with our many partner organisations, including artistic, governmental, non-profit and industrial partners, who in turn help drive our research questions.

Music research

From contemporary music to technological developments and the cultural significance of music.

Theatre, film, television and interactive media research

We use interdisciplinary approaches to creativity and technology, theory and practice to engage with the past, present and future of storytelling.

University research themes

We actively engage with the University's research themes. Explore our main themes:

The inaugural conference on Sound and Music for Immersive Storytelling (SAMIS) organised by academics from the School included a range of papers, performances and discussion panels delivered by academics from across the world. The event included lively discussions about a fascinating range of related topics from a variety of different perspectives. The multi/inter-disciplinary nature of the work and fledgling community is very exciting and we're looking forward to future collaborative events in this space.
