Collaboration and Partnership Development
Since 2005, TCCE has been cultivating an extensive network comprising researchers from many disciplines as well as creative industries practitioners, artists, policy makers and other stakeholders.
We can use our skills in curating and brokering to bring diverse groups together to consider issues of mutual concern. Furthermore, we bring evidenced experience of designing, developing and delivering large scale creative collaborative research projects such Creativeworks London, which ran from 2012 – 2016 and was one of the AHRC’s Knowledge Exchange hubs. Here TCCE devised methodologies and programmes that resulted in 109 collaborations between researchers and arts, cultural and creative companies being supported. Our project The Exchange, which brought together a national network of 17 universities and key arts organisations in a 2 year programme funded by ACE and HEFCE was designed to support career development for Early Career Researchers, and research enabled innovation for creative SMEs.
As a result of our long-term expertise in this field, we can work with you from the very start of your ideas by providing workshops in areas such as identifying collaboration values, developing shared collaboration value and overcoming barriers to collaboration. We are also happy to discuss needs you may have shaping funding bids, or to help you designing and managing programmes once you have secured funds.
