Arts & culture

Logo UCL monochrome

The Université Catholique de Lille attaches great importance to the development and accessibility of art and culture within its various institutions.

Cultural program

“Place of education, research, and service to society, the Université Catholique de Lille  also seeks to be a place of fulfillment, discovery, and meeting of diverse people. 


In 2024, the Creative Campus will organize new cultural conferences weekly, and we hope they will be rich in discovery for you. 


Open to a large audience (students, staff, and residents of Lille), the conferences are open to all who seek to learn, be enriched by others, and gain the knowledge necessary for a better understanding of topical issues. Some conferences are part of a thematic thread, “Motifs et Couleurs” (Patterns and Motives), that runs through the cultural season, while others will make you travel to faraway lands.


In a spirit of friendliness and reciprocal exchange with speakers, the conferences are primarily organized in available rooms on campus. However, for individuals who cannot attend, the conferences may be accessed remotely.

Other cultural activities are scheduled over the upcoming weeks, such as the new “RencArts du midi” (lunchtime arts encounter), group outings, and concerts by the University Choir, which is recruiting choristers of all ages and vocal ranges.  

We look forward to welcoming you to the University.”

Cultural Development Officer
