Making meaning in the arts

Insight is a creative research centre at Lancaster University

Our disciplinary bases are Fine Art, Theatre, Film, Dance and Sound, and our practical and theoretical research draws upon expertise in these areas, extending across and beyond them to engage with arts audiences of all kinds.

Working with a range of organisations, we take critical and cross-disciplinary approaches to creative research questions. Our focus on ‘making meaning’ reflects the importance of practice in our work, and highlights our interest in the ways in which the arts take on significance and value in society.
