Capitalizing on strong collaborations among faculty in the Arts and Humanities across Northeastern’s Global University network, and coinciding with London Tech Week, NU-London is hosting a series of events during the week of June 10th focused on the theme of Urban Creativities. The goal is to bring together university-based faculty and students with community partners for generative collaborations that use creative practices to meet the needs of the urban communities amongst whom we live.


Faculty from Boston and Oakland will join colleagues based in London for a hybrid roundtable that will address the question of: 

  • How can Northeastern unleash its strengths in Urban Creativities - the application of creative Arts and Humanities practices in tandem with technology - to collaborate with local partners to meet the needs of the communities where we live?
