The Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) is a leading centre for research, scholarship and professional practice in visual and media arts, design and music, and is based in the Westminster School of Arts.
Art and Society
Explored through performance, installation, and ceramics, and between art and science, the diverse practices of CREAM researchers in this area are drawn together for their emphasis on critical and collective engagements with the question and role of art and society.
Film and Media
Film and media research is a long standing area of excellence at CREAM, and leads the field for interdisciplinary approaches to moving image practices and their discourses. CREAM research ranges from experimental documentary to moving image installations of international renown.
Music research within CREAM is fundamentally multidisciplinary, investigating all corners of the commercial music industries - from songwriting, production and creative practice, to sound technology and innovation in music business.
We understand photography as a broad inter-disciplinary field of study based on the photographic image, set within the distinct but overlapping networks of visual art, culture and media practice. Current focus includes contemporary art, social media, digital imaging, politics and big data networks.
