Cultural Institute cross-disciplinary innovation fund with Leeds Museums and Galleries

Deadline: 15 January 2018

Leeds Museums and Galleries and the Cultural Institute are seeking to foster new and novel collaborations between the two institutions. Together we have established the Leeds Museums and Galleries/Cultural Institute Cross-Disciplinary Innovation Fund.

We are offering eight awards of £500 each, with which we hope to encourage small but beneficial partnerships with a wider range of academic disciplines. We are looking for proposals that are innovative and help develop fresh understandings of our collections. This might include proposals for new interpretations, talks or events of interest to a general audience, but we are happy to consider compelling ideas that fall outside these simple categories. There may be commonalities between your research and collections in areas such as climate change, biodiversity, health and well-being or engineering.

Cultural Institute research workshops

Cultural Institute research workshops aim to build collaborations and create new knowledge. They are open to people working in the cultural and creative sector and academics from any discipline from the University of Leeds.

Cultural sector professionals and practitioners are invited to meet some of the leading researchers in the cultural economy, exploring areas as diverse as audiences in a digital age, the creative workforce and historical and contemporary perspectives on intellectual property.
