First online database of university art & design galleries in Europe

UNIG (UNIversity Galleries) is a platform where university museums and galleries meet their audience and vice versa.

UNIG is a space for research, sharing knowledge and experience, and discovering the importance of university museums. Its main goal is to create a shared platform for (not only) staff from university galleries and museums to get inspired within the field of audience engagement and community development.

It is also a potential network for university art and design galleries in Europe. The international network is a welcome help not only for the mutual communication of university galleries, but it also serves tourists, schools and other cultural subjects to be informed about the possibilities to visit university galleries and follow their activities


UNIG spreads awareness about the importance and role of university galleries in our society.


We gather professionals, projects, and information from the field of university galleries to create and strengthen the international and interdisciplinary cooperation among university galleries to open them to a wider audience.


  • to bring the inspiration about the audience engagement and community development
  • to enable university gallery staff to share their experiences and information
  • to create educational opportunities for employees of university galleries in the field of arts management and other disciplines needed for effective management of university galleries
  • to increase international cooperation through shared international projects in which academics and students working in university galleries can participate
  • to raise awareness of the activities of university galleries towards greater openness to the public
  • to create online database and virtual map of university galleries in Europe
  • to increase the research proposals and projects within the topic of university galleries and museums
  • to bring innovations and fresh ideas to the academic field of art, design and their exhibition
