ESRI leads AHRC-funded Creative Network

A new network aims to bring together arts organisations, youth workers and artists to help tackle marginalisation across the UK.

The Creative Margins network, funded by Arts Council England, will meet five times in locations across England and Wales throughout 2018. Meetings will focus on topics including enterprise in the arts, trust, evaluation, and the use of space. Organisations including Tate, National Museum Wales, Common Wealth Theatre and the UK Federation for Detached Youth are all official project partners and meeting hosts, and part of the funding will be used for bursaries to enable local artists to attend.

The network will be run by Manchester Metropolitan University and will provide an opportunity for academics to develop a more complex understanding of marginalisation, and as the basis for further research.
