Keele has a vibrant arts programme, comprising art, music, poetry, performances and other cultural treats as well. We have our own art gallery, which is located in the Chancellor’s Building, and host a wide range of events throughout the year, including a full and varied music programme, public lectures and live poetry readings.

We are fortunate to have interesting collections, including the Stross Collection of art; a painting by LS Lowry; sculpture by Sir Jacob Epstein; the Raven Mason collection of Staffordshire ceramics; and our Special Collections and Archives located in the University library.

Our 2020-2021 artists in residence is performance poet Bohdan Piasecki who is working alongside colleagues at Keele Institute of Social Inclusion on Excavating Vulnerability
