GSD funding success: Getting creative with sustainability
Image credit: Alan Paxton
Congratulations to Dr Jonathan Clarke and Dr Alastair Smith for their successful applications to the ‘Getting Creative with Sustainability’ funding call!
The 'Getting Creative with Sustainability' funding aims to create the opportunity for local artists and creatives to work with Warwick researchers and external regional public/third sector organisations, around the broad theme of sustainability. These knowledge exchange-based collaborations will see the three parties involved sharing insights around sustainability research in its broadest sense within the context of the organisation or region. The projects will create a means for researchers, organisations, and creatives to work together via an innovative and creative collaboration, which is designed to stimulate, develop, or cement relationships between Warwick researchers and regional externals whilst supporting knowledge exchange, research development, impact, and communications.
