Successful proposal to SGSAH

21st May 2020

A joint proposal for an AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Studentship to develop a framework for evaluating environmentally concerned, arts-based community interventions has been successful.

Creative Carbon Scotland, in partnership with the University of Glasgow has successfully applied to the Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities for a fully funded PhD to take forward an interdisciplinary project in “Assessing arts-based interventions for sustainable practice”.

Summary of the project

Tackling the climate crisis requires deep-rooted cultural change at all levels of society. Creative practitioners have begun to devise ways of exploring environmental concerns through arts-based interventions that make common ground with the cultural practices of local communities, but there is as yet no common framework by which we can evaluate the longer-term effectiveness of such interventions. This project will observe two distinct creative interventions, critically reflect upon them as both artistic creations and pedagogical tools within an Energy and Environmental Humanities framework, and develop a portable qualitative framework for the design and assessment of arts-based community interventions.

The AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Studentship will commence in Autumn 2020.

More information about the project and how to apply will be advertised shortly.
