Background
Since its earliest days, the University of Birmingham has been home to pioneers who have effected change in the world we live, from sciences to the arts; their groundbreaking achievements have been recognised and honoured at national and international level, including the Nobel Prize. To read more about our history as a research university, please read our Blue Plaque Guide.  World-leading research remains of prime importance to the University today and our academics work on everything from the Big Bang to Shakespeare, creating research that transforms lives. We are looking for artists that are interested in exploring and interpreting this research; creating their own readings of it. We also have superb cultural assets at the University of Birmingham and we hope that successful applicants will explore as many of them as possible for inspiration.
