History of Dartington Hall Estate

Dartington Hall Estate was the site of Dartington College of Arts from 1961 to 2008. This internationally renowned higher education college provided arts degrees with an emphasis on innovative performance and inter-disciplinary arts. 

Inspired and influenced by the cross-disciplinarity and post-modern modes of practice that emerged from Black Mountain College in North Carolina in the 1950s, courses included postdramatic theatre, music, choreography, visual performance and performance writing. Its radical and inventive approaches to arts pedagogy and practice-based research attracted staff and students that includes Rudolph LabanJohn Cage, and Michael Chekhov.

Dartington is also cited as the place where Arts Council England was conceived and is the home to the forward-thinking Schumacher College, which is a leading international centre for sustainable education.

Now Dartington Hall Trust continues the spirit of the ‘Dartington Experiment’ by working as a social enterprise. It creates opportunities for artists, economists, horticulturists and social reformers to consider new thinking and action, to create a more sustainable, just and enriching world.
