Once again it has been a privilege and pleasure to work with such a rich and dynamic network and as we end one busy year and begin another, we are delighted to announce that the membership is yet again growing. It is with pleasure that we welcome Ravensbourne and Loughborough University London to TCCE.
A year in snapshot:
In October 2014, we celebrated our 5th Inside Out Festival with nearly 60 events taking place, several in collaboration with partners including: The British Academy, The Freud Museum and Somerset House, embracing topics as diverse as ‘Women, Fashion, Power’, ‘Artists in the Academy’ ‘Design and Dementia’, ‘Sustainable Futures’ and ‘Exploring Electronic Waste’.
The year also saw us building our work with Early Career Researchers, developing new modules under our Rules of Engagement series, holding networking and information sharing events on topics from the REF to the music industry and developing vital links with the publishing industry. We also produced our second walking weekend in Spring 2015 under the banner of Walking The City.
TCCE’s annual conference focussed on the timely theme of Exploring the New Normal, reflecting on whether partnerships between HEIs and the Cultural and Creative Sectors really are becoming more commonplace.
This was also a year of big change at TCCE with long-standing Executive Director, Sally Taylor moving to take up an exciting new role as CEO of the Koestler Trust. Her passion, wisdom and energy made a lasting impression on all those who worked with her and her work in championing Early Career academics, in particular, leaves a powerful legacy.
We continue to deliver the Knowledge Exchange Programme for Creativeworks London and are very pleased that in total we have supported 109 collaborative projects across our various programmes along with an additional 34 matched through partnership with London Creative and Digital Fusion.
I'm very excited to be able to share with you all my first call for paper as co-Editor in Chief - with my colleague Dr Hye-Kyung Lee of KCL - for the journal Cultural Trends. If you have ideas for special issues, please get in touch. tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1…
