ICIA is an arts research centre, developing, commissioning and supporting new and innovative contemporary arts projects regionally, nationally and internationally. We offer training, research and development opportunities for artists, arts professionals, academics and educators.
We present a professional programme of thematically linked performances, exhibitions, symposia, talks and films with an emphasis on interdisciplinary and cross art-form practice. We focus on the process of best practice creative research, development, documentation and evaluation as much as presentation and performance.
This Archive aims not only to provide a record of information about past projects and events but also to create an interactive resource for the wider arts community. Looking around, you’ll find podcasts from Artist’s talks, links to blogs, websites and previous work, images from exhibitions and details about ICIA commissions, partnerships and artist residencies.
We’re constantly updating the site, adding to existing posts and creating new ones as projects happen, so please keep coming back to see how things develop.
