Participate in, and Contribute to, our Activities

NCACE has been established to support those within Higher Education (HE) research and knowledge exchange, as well as the arts and cultural sector. Funders, policymakers, and those in other organisations who collaborate or work with HE and the arts, and are interested in the evidencing of the social, cultural and environmental impacts of their work are also likely to find value in NCACE’s activities.


In line with our mission to facilitate Knowledge Exchange (KE), and to better evidence and showcase the impacts of such activities, we invite academic and non-academic staff in HEIs, as well as arts and culture sector workers and practitioners, to participate across all areas of NCACE activities.
