Peninsula Arts is the wide-ranging public arts programme of the University of Plymouth and plays a pivotal role in building culture and art in the city and South West region, supporting established, new and emerging artists from around the world. The programme includes exhibitions, dance, films, music, performance and talks.

It hosts the largest contemporary art gallery in Plymouth; a diverse range of classic films and contemporary cinematic masterpieces screened in the Jill Craigie Cinema; a cutting edge theatre and dance programme in The House; musical performances and concerts, and a year-long series of fascinating talks that open up the world of history.

Open to all University of Plymouth students and the public.

Trans-Form at Peninsula Arts

Trans-Form explores the work of British modernist artist, Trevor Bell, which across three decades of his career penetrated and captured the physical and the natural, in a profoundly simplistic way. 

Bell's own mantra to never look backwards fits neatly into this season's theme of 'transformations' and viewing his work is arguably a trans-formative experience in itself.
