Catalyst Institute for Creative Arts and Technology is an international, creative production learning community based at the extraordinary Funkhaus facility.

Our courses are based on the values and concepts of progressive education whilst complying with the rigorous requirements of a UK university qualification. We encourage students to push their creative boundaries way beyond what they thought possible at the same time as engaging with their personal growth as a human being.

We aim to become THE international creative production and performance learning institution of choice for students from around the world. We are dedicated to building a diverse team in our multicultural environment and strongly encourage applications from minority groups and women.
