The Symposium was convened by Keri Facer, Andrew Miles, Pat Thomson and Tom Wakeford as part of Keri Facer’s Leadership Fellowship for the Connected Communities Programme.
The aims of the Symposium were:
• To create an opportunity for individuals from community, arts and academic fields to reflect together on the research cultures and practices that might contribute to greater social and economic equality
• To explore the contribution of Connected Communities research projects to creating research cultures capable of addressing longstanding inequalities
• To lay the groundwork for a book and, potentially, an online resource that would support other researchers in community, arts and academic fields, to develop research projects
