Arts and Humanities - Public Engagement & Creative Economy

We learnt with great pleasure from FutureEverything that Lancaster led Creative Exchange AHRC Hub project in the humanities has been awarded 5 million GBP  by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). AHRC announced a 16  million GBP boost for Arts and Humanities researchers and the UK Creative Economy, an investment

reflecting the significant benefits that arts and humanities researchers bring to the creative business

With four leading institutions, University of Lancaster, University of Dundee, Queen Mary, University of London and University of the West of England, and partners including the BBC, Microsoft, TATE Liverpool, the British Museum, the project aims to contribute to the UK cultural platform's openness towards its public.

For more on cultural openness in the UK, visit the National Co-ordinating Centre for Public Engagement website.
