Get Involved

This project aims to build bridges and stimulate debate it is very important to ensure that community organisations, academics and members of the public get involved with the research. We will regularly update the website with further details and send details to our mailing list.

The report for the project will be launched in around June 2018. Details will be confirmed nearer the time.


In 2017 we held a number of 1 day workshops across the UK.

These workshops offered advice and guidance on partnership working with universities, drawing on the expertise of the Connected Communities Programme, as well as offering open space opportunities for talking through concerns, risks, aspirations and experiences.

The workshops were open to all who have engaged in university-community collaborations and those interested in exploring the potential opportunities in this area.

The workshops were held as per the below:

Nottingham – 16th June 2017 – New Art Exchange

London – 5th July 2017 – Resource for London

Liverpool – 19th July 2017 – The Kuumba Imani Millenium Centre
