Creative Engagement Fellowship Summary Report 2022 Phase. 1: Pilot Projects – Short Version
The Fellowship was developed through the work accomplished by U.matter, an engagement project focused on supporting community health through diverse programming, the NCCPE’s research into collaborative work between artists and researchers, and funding supplied by the Wellcome Trust’s Institutional Strategic Support Fund, which supports universities to explore research culture change, increase the value of public engagement, and support equality and diversity initiatives.
The collaborations supported by this scheme generated beneficial impacts across the institutions, communities, research, and most notably the collaborators involved. The mutual exchange of skills and expertise for opportunities to improve practice for engagement and inclusion across research and the arts is what underpins furthering the development of this scheme.
