Welcome to TCCE’s March 2017 e-newsletter

As the year moves on apace and with Spring almost in the air, we’re delighted to bring you our monthly e-newsletter.
Firstly, a reminder of the upcoming deadline for the AHRC’s recently announced extension to their Research Networking Scheme for International Development with ‘China and the Creative Economy’ as a new area of opportunity. Deadline for applications is 25 April 2017.

 

We are pleased to announce that one of TCCE’s newest members, London South Bank University, has joined forces with the Lyric Hammersmith to develop a new ‘low residency’ Creative Performance Practice Masters.

 

Dr Canan Kocabasoglu-Hillmer has just been appointed Cass Business School’s inaugural Director of Global Women’s Leadership Programme, an initiative, funded by The Coca-Cola Foundation, designed to attract and nurture rising women leaders.

 

TCCE is delighted to announce the programme for our 7th Inside Out Festival: Connecting Higher Education with the Arts, Cultural and Creative Industries on 24th and 25th March. With around 30 events including: workshops, discussions, debates, performances, walks, screenings and exhibitions, the festival showcases the extraordinary contribution made by TCCE’s member universities and conservatoires to the arts, cultural and creative sectors, and vice versa. Inside Out Festival, in association with Times Higher Education, creates a unique platform for creative knowledge exchange around areas of mutual concern, interest and speculation. With a substantial focus on the increasing intersections of technology on and in the arts and culture, this year’s Inside Out Festival is being hosted by Somerset House on Friday 24th March and London South Bank University on Saturday 25 March. Highlights include: Artists in Tech Cities, Data Recovery, on our phones and how they track, trace and archive our lives and Artistic Purpose in a fractured Society.

 

In the week following on from the festival, we will be hosting Funding After Brexit, on 29th March 2pm - 5pm in association with Euclid. This event is open to both members and non-members of TCCE.

 

We  will also be hosting a members only round-table to develop TCCE’s response to government’s new Green Paper ‘Building Our Industrial Strategy’. This will take place on 3rd April from 3pm to 5pm.
Do email us if you would like to attend. Please note that spaces for this event are limited.

 

Finally, we are absolutely delighted to announce the winners of our third and final round of our National Academics and Creatives Exchange Collaborative Research Awards, funded by ACE and HEFCE, with six projects across the country from Exeter to Newcastle.
