Funding Call 2020-21

Connecting cultures through co-production

The Connecting Cultures GRP is pleased to announce that new funding is available for research which is co-designed and co-produced between Warwick researchers and community groups or cultural organisations. These groups/organisations can be anywhere in the world, and do not need to be Coventry based.

Up to £1,500 is available (and smaller bids are encouraged) for strategic projects that:

  • Have a strong and demonstrable element of co-design and co-production, working in dialogue with local community or public sector groups or representatives around cultural themes and concerns.
  • Will deliver tangible benefits to these groups: this benefit might be social, economic and/or cultural.

If relevant to the project, it would be great if projects and their outcomes are able to be showcased at Coventry City of Culture roadshow under the theme of ‘Words and Voices’ in September 2021. Please indicate in your proposal if this is likely to be the case. More information on the roadshows can be found here
