Are you an academic or researcher within the Arts, Humanities and Culture (AHC) Faculty?
Have you conducted (or participated in) research projects which engaged non-academic organisations within the Leeds City Region (including Bradford, Calderdale, Craven, Harrogate, Kirklees, Leeds, Selby, Wakefield, and York)? If so, we need to hear from you!
Did you know that on the AHC faculty's various websites, we have found at least 73 projects engaging with 113 organisations?
We have been awarded funding from Research England for the project "Enhancing participatory research skills and partnerships: A review of mechanisms for engagement with community and voluntary organisations." This research would complement work undertaken in the 2020 report from the Leeds Social Science Institute about university-wide civic collaboration ("Unlocking the Potential of Civic Collaboration: A review of research-policy engagement between the University of Leeds and Leeds City Council"). Leeds Arts and Humanities Research Institute (LAHRI) would like to encourage, support, and facilitate future AHC colleagues' efforts towards impactful, participatory research and engagement with communities.
We would like to invite you to a workshop where we will discuss with you our findings to date, map participatory research activities and interactions between colleagues specifically from the AHC, and identify barriers and opportunities for future collaborations, funding, and other sources of help. We need to hear from you, so please join us at the workshop!
