Funding – Centre for Cultural Value

The Collaborate Fund will see the Centre for Cultural Value invest a total of £200,000 to support the development of collaborative research projects between cultural sector partners and academic researchers investigating under explored, sector-driven questions of cultural value.
Research topics will be identified by cultural sector partners and then matched with expressions of interest from suitable academic research partners to jointly develop a specific research question, approach, methodology and project funding application.
Projects developed through this programme will contribute to deeper understanding of the differences arts, culture, heritage and screen engagement make to people’s lives and the range of research methodologies used to explore cultural value. As well as providing funding for projects, participation in the Collaborate programme will provide opportunities for professional development in collaborative research practice through skills sharing, active learning and access to a cohort of peers, workshops and learning resources.

The Centre will support up to 15 projects, with awards of between £5K and £20K which can be used to cover all or part-costs of collaborative projects lasting between 6-12 months.

Deadline: Academic researchers submit an expression of interest between 6 December 2021 and 26 January 2022 in response to one or more of the 10 cultural sector proposals selected by the assessment panel.
