Goldsmiths’, University of London

Goldsmiths College, University of London was founded in 1891, and has been part of the University of London since 1904. Goldsmiths academic departments, centres and institutes offer a range of study options within the arts and humanities, social sciences, cultural studies, computing, and entrepreneurial business and management.
Goldsmiths College is a leading research and education institution in the UK on Art & Culture studies and cultural entrepreneurship. Within Goldsmiths, the Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship (ICCE) specializes in this field. Goldsmiths offers a MA module called Education, interpretation and communication in museums and a post graduate certificate aimed at museum professionals or those hoping to enter the profession, named "Museums and Galleries as Creative Entrepreneurs and Museums and Galleries as Cultural Entrepreneurs".

The Institute for Creative and Cultural Entrepreneurship (ICCE) is Goldsmiths response to the growing significance of the creative industries and cultural sector in the UK’s economy. Figures have shown that the creative industries account for eight per cent of the UK’s GDP and a rising part of its export trade and total

employment. Business skills, management skills and entrepreneurial skills with a specific understanding of the sector are needed to support its continued growth.

Goldsmiths’ reputation as a leading provider of creative education, and its longstanding engagement with cultural practice and analysis, make it the ideal home for ICCE. Engagement with the creative industries and the not-for-profit cultural sector has long existed across many of Goldsmiths’ academic departments and research centres. What makes ICCE different is its interdisciplinarity. Artistic creativity increasingly blurs the old boundaries of subject disciplines, such as music, drama, dance, fine art, design, communications, media and technology. ICCE serves as an area for experimentation, where all of these disciplines can come together to learn from each other and to develop new creative alliances.

ICCE’s diversity of engagement goes beyond the academic disciplines. ICCE also engages directly with external partners from the creative industries and from other specialist higher education institutions. Some of our partners are actively involved in curriculum development or in providing training opportunities, whilst others act in an advisory capacity. Through their direct engagement, all of them ensure that ICCE’s courses and other activities address the priorities and needs of the growing creative and cultural sector itself.

In its new strategic plan Goldsmiths has identified four strategic pillars around which all initiatives are focused. Within the ‘London and the World’ pillar the College’s international focus is articulated in three sub-strands: educating Goldsmiths students from across the world, partnering with universities and colleges in other countries to provide world-class education, and undertaking research with an international focus. An international perspective is therefore at the heart of the College’s work, informing not only student and staff recruitment and mobility, but also our cross-cultural take on contemporary issues in the creative arts, humanities and social sciences.
