Arts and Humanities for Global Development
Since 2015, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) has made over 200 awards under the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) and the Newton portfolio. These awards have drawn on AHRC’s research base to address development challenges that are ultimately global challenges, including poverty reduction, global health, climate change, resilience, conflict, displacement, inclusive education, and rapid urbanization.
PRAXIS exists to champion the role of Arts and Humanities research through maximising the impact of AHRC GCRF projects. This PRAXIS virtual workshop brings together research projects that address global challenges related to Conflict and Displacement.
Our aim for the workshop is two-fold: first, to encourage networking among GCRF projects and key partners; second, to generate and collect key findings, reflections and lessons learned from GCRF projects to inform a PRAXIS report commissioned by AHRC and to be released in 2021.
In parallel with the workshop programme, PRAXIS will be hosting a virtual space where delegates will be able to review and engage with the creative artefacts generated by over 100 projects that use the arts as a key research method (see film and art exhibition page)
Praxis is hosting a second learning event on the theme of Food and Heritage (10th January 2020). Find out how you can register for the event by visiting: https://t.co/kRjlm0eb8w— Changing The Story (@Changing_Story_) October 7, 2019
