welcome to connecting principle

Connecting Principle is an art centred international multi-disciplinary research forum at Newcastle University instigating a dialogue between art and other disciplines. The aim of the forum is to increase opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration within academia and independently. Connecting Principle sees itself as an international network of artists, theorists and researchers.

Our current activities feature a series of presentations, round table discussions and an annual event that showcases the recent projects and collaborations of our members.
