About our Project

Students installing an exhibition

Cabinet is a student-led, university facilitated extracurricular programme open to any student at Newcastle University. The aim of the programme is to provide participants with opportunities to develop and hone exhibition-making skills, or to experiment with new, innovative approaches to the art of exhibition-making. Funded by University Education Development Fund and the School of Arts and Cultures, Cabinet is overseen by members of the teaching team in Media, Culture, Heritage – a leading centre for research and training in museum, gallery and heritage studies. Exhibitions produced as part of the Cabinet programme are put on public display in the School of Arts and Cultures’ own exhibition space. Participants are recruited on open competition, with the successful applicants being awarded funding and light touch supervision by the members of the teaching team responsible.
