Here for you virtually

Like everyone around the world, Covid-19 impacted upon our operations. From getting behind key city events, welcoming guests on campus, or exhibiting local art, Covid-19 disrupted activity that usually brings our communities together.

Despite this we continued to engage with our communities, delivering virtual knowledge exchange activities and donating equipment to local hospital trusts.

Here you can find a selection of virtual knowledge exchange materials and content including resources for schools and the general public that were developed during the pandemic and are freely available to our communities.
