The second NCACE Ideas Pool will be an opportunity for Arts and Culture sector organisations and artists to meet potential collaborators from the higher education sector and workshop around the four NCACE key themes which are Place-making and Levelling Up, Environment and Climate Emergency, Health and Wellbeing, and Technology for Social Good with our regional partners.
You will hear from some cultural knowledge exchange projects and research collaborations, as well as funders including AHRC and UKRI regarding their priorities and opportunities for support work of this nature.
Bath Spa University will be leading a workshop session on Climate Emergency, Northumbria University on Place, Birmingham City University will be workshopping technology for social good, and Manchester Metropolitan University will be leading a session on health and wellbeing.
NCACE will be offering a small amount of match funding support (circa £1000 per project) to 4 or 5 organisations to develop potential collaborations or joint projects arising from connections made at the Ideas Pool. Further information will be given in the event.
