Goldsmiths, University of London, is a public research university in New Cross, Lewisham, specialising in the arts, design, humanities, and social sciences.
Goldsmiths is a key ‘anchor’ organisation within Lewisham and the talented staff and students are a critical part of the place making asset base as much as the buildings and facilities; Through the CEZ Goldsmiths will be collaborating with other organisations in the Lewisham borough to deliver ground breaking initiatives and will endeavour to deliver a step change to the way the region currently functions, creating value and benefit for the local community and those involved with the creative industries.
Goldsmiths would also like to engage with stakeholders and strategic partners to create clear sign posting for young people to develop a career in the creative industries and through the consolidation of support and facilities, create a fertile place to study and achieve their ambitions.
One of the key aspirations is to attract members of the public into the very heart of Goldsmiths, as a space that is shared with the local community. Through a range of initiatives arts practitioners and local groups can collaborate with Goldsmiths students and staff from across the university.
