Places available! Tuesday 20th May: Developing and Funding Collaborations Workshop

Posted on

Places are still available to attend tomorrow’s workshop on Developing & Funding Collaborations!

The workshop will be taking place in Fulton 114 (13:00 – 17:00)

To book your place, please visit the Researcher Development Webpages

This workshop series is aimed toward research students and early career researchers wishing to initiate, build, and manage collaborations to embed their research in the creative economy, and is open not just to research students/ECRs at the universities of Sussex and Brighton, but also across the CHASE consortium.

Over the course of the workshops, participants will collaboratively analyse their research output, share and discuss experiences of collaboration, examine case studies of successful collaborations, explore synchronicities with other creative practitioners and/or arts organisations, and discuss models for funding, publication and positioning of collaborative projects in the creative economy.

The idea behind this project was conceived after doctoral students and ECRs contacted the lead student with requests for training in building and managing collaborations. The workshops will provide participants with a forum for discussing the collaborative potential of their work, and a structured context for taking steps toward initiating actual collaborations with mentoring and peer support. The workshop series is therefore designed to facilitate situated exploration and results-oriented development of ideas around collaboration.

The workshops are led by facilitators who are research active, work in the creative industry (digital media, experience design, contemporary curatorial practice, film making, sound art, and arts management, including managing touring exhibitions), and have extensive experience of initiating and managing collaborative projects. They will be working with workshop participants to generate ideas and actionable strategies, and act as progress mentors over the course of the project.
