Dr Sophie Hope, Lecturer in Arts Management, attended the Engaged Practice Symposium led by Birkbeck’s Public Engagement team. She shares her experiences of the day, meeting colleagues from different subject areas and their discussions about engaging different audiences with their research.
Monday 17th September 2018
Birkbeck, University of London
This event will bring together Birkbeck researchers with an active interest in participation, involvement and collaboration with communities and publics, within research and knowledge production.
To support this engaged practice, sessions will be focused on sharing experience, networking, and exploring opportunities for funding. Researchers from across the Schools will talk about their projects; discuss their methodologies, challenges, and successes. We will also consider the future support that would be beneficial throughout the engaged research process.
This event is open to all Birkbeck researchers with an interest in dialogue with non-academic groups, throughout the lifespan of their research. The programme will be announced in late-July.
