Hosted by the Public Programmes Team at The Nowgen Centre, Wednesday, 13 May 2015 from 14:00 to 16:00, Manchester M13 9XX, United Kingdom

Engaging the public with current research is becoming ever more important, and in order to reach above and beyond the usual audiences of family groups and schools, increasingly much more creative approaches to engaging with the public are being explored.

The Wellcome Trust Institutional Strategic Support Funding (ISSF), in collaboration with the Public Programmes Team at The Nowgen Centre, has financially supported numerous creative approaches to public engagement and is looking to support new collaborations in the coming months.

With this is mind, the ISSF committee are hosting a networking event on 13 May 2015 from 14.00-16.00 at University of Manchester Innovation Centre on Grafton St.

You are invited to come along to this informal session, enjoy coffee and cake and meet creative practitioners and researchers interested in public engagement.

There will be a brief introduction and then some examples of collaborative and creative projects, some complete and some ongoing, with a chance to share learning of what worked (and what didn’t!) Examples will include print art, workshops, exhibitions and performance.
