Arts at Kent – inspiring the next generation

The importance of the arts at Kent is underlined by our ongoing investment in new courses and outstanding facilities. Julia Baxter tells KENT how this investment is set to inspire the next generation of students.

Dickens’ Kent connections

Although Charles Dickens was closely associated with London and has been widely praised for his vivid evocations of city life in the mid-Victorian period, the county of Kent had an equally important place in both his personal life and his fiction.

Understanding philanthropy: three years on

Shortly after the collapse of Lehman Brothers bank signaled the onset of a global economic crisis, 100 people – including academics, dignitaries and charity leaders – gathered in Darwin College to mark the establishment of a new Centre for Philanthropy, Humanitarianism and Social Justice within the University of Kent.
