The University’s ties with facilities like the Museum of Liverpool, as well as Tate Liverpool , Bluecoat, FACT, Liverpool Philharmonic, Manchester Hallé and Liverpool Biennial, will be strengthened
The University of Liverpool has been awarded funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to support internships for recently completed PhD students to work with local cultural organisations.
The AHRC’s Cultural Engagement Fund will support collaborative projects that strengthen the University’s ties with regional cultural organisations including Tate Liverpool, Fact, Bluecoat, Liverpool Philharmonic, Manchester Hallé, National Museums Liverpool (NML) and the Liverpool Biennial.
Supporting arts and humanities research
The internships will provide early career researchers with opportunities to develop a wide range of skills, particularly in relation to supporting the wider impact of arts and humanities research, and gain valuable experience of the arts and cultural sector.
The University’s Centre for Architecture and Visual Arts will work with Tate Liverpool to bring researchers and practitioners together to share current theories of gallery education and public engagement.
The Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology will support a curator based at NML to develop a new archaeological display aimed at improving the public’s knowledge and awareness of archaeological and anthropological artefacts.
The Department of Philosophy will evaluate and build on the philosophy of art workshops it ran for children and families during the recent Liverpool Biennial.
The University’s School of Music will work with the Liverpool Philharmonic and Manchester Hallé Orchestra to share best practice for storing and maintaining musical records, including performance recordings.
Professor Dinah Birch, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange, said: “The four projects which have been supported will provide great opportunities for early career researchers to gain first-hand experience of working in the arts and culture sector. They will also provide a means of sharing the University’s research and expertise with local cultural organisations.”
AHRC’s Cultural Engagement Fund pilot scheme is supporting 45 universities across the country. Each project will report back on their experience and how they developed their skills later in the year. The projects under the scheme are detailed under the Cultural Engagement pages
