UCL Culture Staff

The UCL Culture team manages the university’s world-class museums, galleries and theatre spaces. Our staff work closely with UCL researchers and communities to help bring ideas and discoveries to life inside and outside the university. We also care for Jeremy Bentham’s famous auto-icon and commission new works of art for the public realm for everyone to enjoy.
