Tuesday 29 October, 9.30am – 4.30pm Kanaris Theatre, Manchester Museum
The ‘Afterlife of Heritage Research’ Skills Training Programme (2012-13; funded by the AHRC and led by the Institute for Cultural Practices; http://heritageafterlife.wordpress.com/about/) aimed to support research students and early career researchers (ECRs) in developing skills, capacity and profiles for professional careers in the heritage sector.
The project’s tailored training provision (including training guides, collaborative projects with cultural institutions, work placements and industrial mentoring) have assisted students and ECRs in identifying, understanding and ‘translating’ the benefits of their heritage research in ‘real-life’ public, professional and business contexts.
In this Showcase event, participating research students, ECRs and partner cultural professionals will reflect on the aims, process, challenges and outcomes of research placements and collaborative public engagement activities between University researchers and cultural organisations.
This event would be of interest to research students, ECRs, supervisors, researcher developers and staff in arts and culture organisations.
