Across our broad range of disciplines, teaching and research in the College of Arts and Law explores and enriches culture, working with communities locally in Birmingham and far beyond.

We support museums and art galleries to improve access to their collections, and deepening understanding of the West Midlands’ cultural heritage. We are unlocking the world’s first great publicly owned Shakespeare Library, and collaborating with cultural institutions regionally and nationally. We work with artists, organisations, and communities to coordinate and maximise the benefits of culture for all.
