Say Hello to Lincoln Arts Centre

The organisation formally known as LPAC will be re-launched under a new name after a consultation which saw 260 students, staff and audience members co-design a new organisational vision and a plan for transformation in four key areas: People, Perception, Programme and Place.


Introducing Lincoln Arts Centre. The University of Lincoln’s public arts centre with a focus on talent development, artistic innovation, and research. A home for the next generation of artists and new artistic ideas. With recent investment from Arts Council England the arts centre will commission new artistic contemporary performance and visual art works that seek to challenge, inspire, and delight audiences.

The coming months will see the organisation introduce new Associate and Resident schemes, new support for independent arts producers, and embed research as central to the organisation.

The new name, physical and digital identity reflect the organisations new artistic vision and place as a truly multi-disciplinary arts centre working with arts and non-arts-based partnerships from health, to science, fashion, and film. It also highlights it’s role as a commissioner of new artistic work, made in Lincoln. This work will be presented together in thematic seasons of work which will connect to completely overhauled artistic policy and processes centred around the premise that ‘We’re Open To Ideas’.

We've now got the digital infrastructure, clarity of purpose and a co-designed vision. I can't wait to crack on with the real work on our first season of work which will explore the important symbiotic relationship between arts, health and wellbeing entitled Just What the Doctor Ordered. Stay tuned for more information on this, and on our game-changing talent development initiatives, exciting events like weekend festivals, new initiatives to ensure every child can be creative, free membership schemes for under 30s and much more over the coming months.'
