Participatory Research
We have secured £50k of funding from Research England to celebrate and enable greater research activity involving community and voluntary organisations in the Leeds City Region. This project, running in the first half of 2022, will provide new opportunities for co-produced, participatory research across the arts and humanities.
The recent years have brought extraordinary and ongoing challenges to societies and cultures, as well as bringing long-standing crises and predicaments to the foreground in new ways. Now in its second year this series of interdisciplinary discussions aims to stimulate larger conversations about how research communities might respond to these challenges – and about the futures we want to imagine and realise.

Interdisciplinary Research and Impact Fund for Culture
Funded by Research England through their Higher Education Innovation Fund, we support collaborative, cultural interdisciplinary projects which have the potential to develop into ambitious funding applications or lead to significant research impact. Projects in 2021/22 include partnerships with Leeds Repair Cafe, Imperial War Museum, Concerteenies, and the Oxford Museum of Natural History.
Our Sadler Seminar Series supports innovative interdisciplinary research projects across and beyond the arts and humanities. Since the first series in 2015, we have hosted a huge range of research projects, many of which have gone on to pioneer new ways of interdisciplinary working and secure major external funding.
