Creative and cultural collaborations event

As part of the ESRC Festival 2021, the event ‘creative and cultural collaborations in social science research’ will take place on Wednesday, 10 November 2021.

This interactive session will connect researchers and various teams from the creative and cultural industries in the North West to discuss the opportunities and challenges of research and knowledge exchange.

There will be a presentation from Creative Manchester’s Creative Industries Deep Dive Aspect Project, which featured ‘deep dives’ exploring creative industries’ ‘best practice’ across Greater Manchester and Yorkshire and Humber regions.

This research – produced in partnership with The University of Manchester and The University of York – explored how partnerships are established and supported, as well as the impact of COVID on partnerships and its effects on diversity in the sector.

The project is supported by funding from Aspect, which seeks to draw together academics and industry leaders to address social challenges and to encourage and commercialise social science research.

There will also be presentations from Manchester Camerata and Community Arts North West, highlighting the challenges and impacts of collaborative work in practice.

The second part of the event will feature a panel discussion chaired by Dr Abi Gilmore, with contributions from:

  • Dr Alicia Rouverol, Research Associate, Creative Manchester
  • Professor Ian Scott, Director for Social Responsibility and Business Engagement in the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, University of Manchester
  • Suzie Leighton, National Centre for Academic Cultural Exchange
