The Creative Futures research group is excited to invite you to this in-person gathering, set up to facilitate a variety of discussions. This World Café style event offers an opportunity to connect with Creative Futures colleagues and work together to explore themes, topics, and issues of interest, including approaches to interdisciplinary research, creative methodologies, generating and evaluating creative projects and interventions, potential funding proposals and more.

We will provide refreshments, along with opportunities for participants to showcase recent work they have done on the Creative Futures space.

Inspired by the World Café format, the meeting is designed to provide time and space for interaction with colleagues from a variety of disciplines and to explore and identify potential areas of crossover, cooperation, and collaboration. This work will take place in small discussion groups and arranged so that you have the chance to interact with different groups and tackle different themes and ideas within the session.

There is no need to prepare anything in advance; this is an informal space for discussion, including, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • What does interdisciplinary research look like? How can wo do interdisciplinary research in the College of Arts, Social Science and Celtic Studies, and beyond? ​What are the benefits and challenges?
  • What kinds of research methods can support interdisciplinary approaches?  Are there research methods we can use and develop in the Creative Futures space? How can these contribute to the research we are doing?
  • How can we engage non-academic audiences with our research, stakeholders including policy makers, community groups and those working to bring about change?  How do we build those networks and how do we evaluate the results of this kind of engagement?
  • What funding opportunities exist for these approaches?
