On behalf of the project’s Advisory Group, Mass Culture is reaching out to the arts community with a Call for Interest to participate in an exciting new Research in Residence: Arts’ Civic Impact initiative, which runs from Fall 2021 to Spring 2022.
After speaking with many of you and your arts service organizations over the last couple of years, it has become clear that arts organizations and festivals are interested in better understanding and communicating the key role that their programming and other activities play in society. Mass Culture firmly believes that collaborative, community-based research shared through open access empowers the arts sector to better demonstrate its many contributions to society
Is your arts organization/ festival keen to house a researcher as part of the Research in Residence: Arts’ Civic Impact initiative? Before you apply, make sure you’ve fully read the Call for Interest. If you have any questions, please be in touch with [email protected].
