Culture & Collaborative Practice
Led by Sue Potts, our Culture & Collaborative Practice research strand engages with artists, cultural producers, cultural organisations and communities. The research within this strand employs a co-designed and embedded approach to developing methodologies, which help our cultural collaborators to capture, measure, explain and understand the impact of their work.
Current projects include SILO (Supporting Improved Learning Opportunities for Hard to Reach Adults), a pan-European project funded via Erasmus+ which aims to develop pedagogy for validating adult skills and competencies gained through participatory arts projects.
Reading the Walls is a collaboration with TATE Liverpool concerning approaches to co-designing gallery interpretation approaches with Gallery Education professionals, marketing and social media experts, curators, and visitor and audience groups. This project will lead to a seminar for TATE Plus partners who will discuss findings from a series of cross disciplinary workshops.
Our Day Out, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, was a partnership project between the ICC, LJMU Screen School, LJMU Special Collections and Archives, Age Concern and Kensington Fields Community Association. Working with Screen School students the project toured aspects of the Keith Medley Archive to older people’s groups, testing engagement with static archives and cultural memory.
