As a School, we work closely with our partner organisations to enhance our teaching and to explore exciting research possibilities.
One of our partners is the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra (RLPO). During your time with us, particularly if you are a music student, you will have opportunity to have your pieces workshopped by members of the RLPO. Opportunities also exist in performance for students to get involved with the RLPO’s In Harmony Project.
The School also enjoys key partnerships with The European Opera Centre, The Beatles Story, the City’s two cathedrals (Liverpool Anglican Cathedral and Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral), and Milapfest (Indian Music and Dance). Partners typically contribute special workshops to undergraduate and postgraduate provision. Opportunities also exist for undergraduate students to undertake work-based learning placements with our partners, and to attend selected concerts and events.
Milapfest is the UK’s South Asian Arts Development Trust, run by national charity Milap Festival Trust. Milapfest works to promote and support the performance, development and appreciation of Indian arts internationally. Since March 2010, Milapfest’s home has been Liverpool Hope University’s Creative Campus, with whom a strategic partnership has been formed to develop all aspects of Indian arts performance and education – from training to world-class performances. Milap’s presence exposes Hope’s students to the very best in eastern culture particularly in dance, music and art.
Our relationship with the Limon Institute has facilitated the development of staff with Hope dancers going to New York and Limon dancers such as Alan Danielson teaching a residency to Hope students.
In addition, our School of Creative and Performing Arts students benefit from exciting opportunities arising from the many relationships and partnerships the University has developed over the years with Liverpool’s finest creative institutions. They include:
