Project Description

12 month WRDTP ESRC Fellowship which will develop my skills as an academic.

My objectives for this ESRC fellowship are four-fold:
I. To carry out timely and important research which evaluates the impact of community arts/heritage organisations in Hull and their role in addressing socio-economic inequality and improving ‘liveability’.
II. To consolidate relevant research from my PhD and produce two academic articles to be published in academic journals.
III. To disseminate outputs from my research activities (Objectives I. & II.) and generate a dialogue between community groups, arts, and heritage organisations around how we can understand the impacts of community arts/heritage interventions on local liveability. This will include generating a policy brief, an infographic and convening sessions at two academic conferences.
IV. To undertake training and teaching/administration activities that develop my skills as an academic which will further my career goals to become a lecturer.
