Dr Katy Parry awarded Interdisciplinary Research and Impact Fund for Culture
Associate Professor in Media and Communication Katy Parry awarded money from the Interdisciplinary Research and Impact Fund for Culture.
Dr Katy Parry has been awarded £2,230 from the Interdisciplinary Research and Impact Fund for Culture, run jointly by the Leeds Arts and Humanities Research Institute and the Cultural Institute. She will be working with the Public Engagement and Learning Team at the Imperial War Museum (IWM) and the creative youth arts charity, Gorse Hill Studios, to run a series of workshops with refugees from Greater Manchester.
The workshops build on focus groups conducted with refugees as part of the AHRC-funded ‘Tim Hetherington and conflict imagery network’ with Greg Brockett and Katy Thornton from IWM. But these new workshops will take a creative ‘photovoice’ approach to further explore themes of representation, storytelling and agency, and for participants to gain skills in a supportive environment.
