AHRC: Common Ground
June 21, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 6:00 pmFree, booking required
On midsummers night’s eve, the AHRC Commons first national event, Common Ground, will be held at the Ron Cooke Hub and TFTV on the University of York’s Heslington East campus.
Over the course of a packed and exciting day there will be a wide range of activities across nine zones ranging from theatrical, operatic, and poetry performances to debates, keynotes, film showings, tech hacks, and live streaming via online radio.
The Common Ground activities will be run by participants from organisations across the UK including Higher Education Institutions, cultural organisations, museums and galleries such as the British Library, the National Railways museum and Sage Gateshead and community groups.
AHRC Commons Fellow, Professor Richard Clay, said: “This event promises to be a wonderful celebration of the AHRC Commons community, an opportunity to share knowledge and expertise, to establish new networks and projects, to be inspired, and to further develop the case for the importance of arts and humanities research.”
Attending Common Ground is free of charge and you can book a place (places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis) via the Common Ground Eventbrite page.
Reportage from the event in York will be shared via the Commons blog and on twitter using the hashtag #AHRCcommons.
