About the ARB

The Alison Richard Building (‘ARB’) was carefully designed to blend in with the other buildings on the University of Cambridge’s Sidgwick Site. Internally, however, it is far more distinctive. The building has a north wing and a south wing attached to a central atrium – the social hub of the building – a light and spacious area suitable for exhibitions.

The ARB is home to the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) and the  Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS), including the Centre of African Studies, Centre of Development Studies, the Centre of Latin American Studies, Centre of South Asian Studies and the Centre for Gender Studies.

The ARB art committee is run on a voluntary basis by staff and academics based in the various departments and centres in the Alison Richard Building. The main contact for the art committee is Judith Weik (jw571@cam.ac.uk), based at CRASSH.
