Common Cause Research Workshops Announced


Common Cause Research is seeking to explore where and how common cause can be made between change agents in universities, communities and funding bodies who are looking to create an Arts and Humanities knowledge base that fully reflects the cultures and experiences of the UK’s Black and minority ethnic communities. We will do so specifically by mapping, strengthening and extending research collaborations that exist between Black and minority ethnic cultural and community organisations and academics currently working in the Arts and Humanities.

In 2017 we will be running workshops across the UK, These workshops will offer advice and guidance on partnership working with universities, drawing on the expertise of the Connected Communities Programme, as well as offering open space opportunities for talking through concerns, risks, aspirations and experiences.

The workshops are open to all from a Black and minority ethnic community who have engaged in university-community collaborations and those interested in exploring the potential opportunities in this area.
