NCACE offers an open programme across our key areas of work.

We warmly welcome individuals and institutions to engage and collaborate with us. Participate in conversations, curated workshops, research collaborations, policy discussions, showcasing events and Ideas Labs for challenge-led ideas generation around themes such as health, climate change, place-making and levelling out, and technologies for social good and more.

NCACE Festival of Cultural Knowledge Exchange

NCACE is delighted to present our inaugural festival of Cultural Knowledge Exchange which takes place from 10 – 14 October 2022.

The festival is a space for fresh considerations and perspectives on cultural knowledge exchange between Higher Education and the Arts and Cultural Sector. It presents a range of timely discussions, workshops, debates and other activities designed to bring together researchers, academics, artists, arts professionals, policy-makers and indeed anyone with an interest in research partnerships, networks, collaborations, and engagements and exchanges of all kinds between universities and the arts.

Over the course of a week, the festival will enable conversation, exploration, collaboration development and mutual exchange and it aims to:

  • Showcase some of the brilliant collaborations taking place between universities and the arts and culture sector
  • Inspire fresh thinking about the values, scope and possibilities of cultural knowledge exchange
  • Share, and contribute input to, current policy developments in knowledge exchange
  • Encourage knowledge-sharing, discussion, debate and about topics including: artists residency models; developing leadership capacity for knowledge exchange; universities, place-based and civic partnerships to name but a few themes
  • Facilitate the development of new connections and networks through the launch of NCACE’s Collaboration Platform

We will be releasing details about additional festival activities throughout September.

In curating the NCACE Festival of Knowledge Exchange, we are delighted to be working with a range of individuals and partner institutions including:

10 – 14 October 2022

 

We look forward to welcoming you. Registration pages for individual sessions are below.
