Hack-a-demia 2.0 is an interactive conference for early career researchers, artists, creative SMEs and policy makers which will explore the benefits, challenges, and possibilities that meaningful collaboration between the arts, creative industries and the academy can bring to all involved.
For the past two years The Culture Capital Exchange has been running The National Academics and Creatives Exchange (The Exchange), a two-year project supported by Arts Council England and the Higher Education Funding Council for England. The Exchange has connected early career academic researchers, creative SMEs, artists and micro-businesses from around the country to develop collaborations and to encourage the exchange of knowledge and expertise. Our aim has been to deepen understanding around how and why academic researchers and creatives should work together while, at its heart, the project has seed funded 26 collaborations between researchers and creatives.
Through an imaginative programme of workshops, talks and facilitated networking, Hack-a-demia 2.0 will draw on and showcase the findings of The Exchange project to explore how creative practitioners and academic researchers can learn from each other’s approaches. We’ll prove how getting out of your professional comfort zone can enhance the impact of your work, build genuine cross-sector and interdisciplinary collaborations, and develop your practice for the future in a variety of ways.
Existing creative / research partnerships will be able to book 1:1 surgery sessions with TCCE staff. We will offer advice on how to take your collaboration to the next level, and we promise that all attendees will leave Hack-a-demia 2.0 with an enhanced network (and maybe even new friends) as a result of our “Cannon Chequers” networking!
