Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts (LICA) encompasses Lancaster’s teaching and research activities in Art, Dance, Design, Film and Theatre. A strong research ethos underpins and shapes what we do. Research activities ensure our contributions are recognised in contemporary practice, theory, and performance. Staff, students, and graduates set agendas in, and make meaningful contribution to, the contemporary arts.
